Critical Studies students at the Caldera Art Center
November 30, 2020
This annual writing retreat allows for focused time to work toward completing the thesis paper. The thesis process is overseen by program Chair Shawna Lipton and faculty member Taylor Eggan. The thesis is a culmination of the students’ independent research completed during the second year of the program.
When taking a break from writing, the students spent time enjoying the open space in the lodge and walking the trails around Blue Lake. The grounds of the Art Center are located on the rim of a silent volcano. The lake is a breathtaking blue color due to its extreme depth.
The MA in Critical Studies students recently had the opportunity to spend time in the serene landscape of the Caldera Art Center near Sisters, Oregon.
This curated digital reader accompanies November's 2020 PNCA Graduate Symposium: “Forms of Care: Building the Worlds We Need.” It offers podcasts, webinars, articles and more to empower our community as work to find creative ways of sustaining, nourishing, and caring for our world.
