Free Unit

The Free Unit helps students make their own projects. Students develop contracts with the unit defining their aims and methods and they choose ten project “friends” to help guide them throughout the year. For Christmas they develop a gift project for their friends and in March and April swap projects for a day and participate in a one-week drawing workshop. Free unit projects at their best are the first stage of the students future practice rather than the final stage of their education and students initiate live projects and establish practices that carry them beyond graduation.

The projects are as varied as the students themselves.
