Independent Study Project Lab

Presented by Snezhana Chernova

To be held both in-person and online:

For artists who are interested in developing their own projects, this is an independent class working solo or with a partner on an independent study project that you devise, under the guidance of HB faculty, Snezhana Chernova.

You must submit a proposal for review and approval prior to registering. The proposal should include a work-plan, proposed outcome, and the estimated number of hours required to complete the project. Creative projects might be shared in public presentations at HB Playwrights Theater at the end of the term.

Undertaking independent study requires a commitment to check-ins with the instructor and  weekly 2.5 hour group meetings to report objectives, progress, trouble shoot, present projects, and exchange ideas. An additional one-on-one 30 minute session with the instructor may be held each week.

Examples of projects include: Writing a screenplay/play, doing a podcast, doing a live stream performance series, monologues or scenes, creating a TV pilot, writing a music, shooting a documentary or short/feature film, writing a poetry etc. Selected projects might be shared on HB Studio social media channels.

This Independent Study Project Lab requires a commitment of 4 hours per week.

This Lab is offered with meetings in person at HB Studio on Mondays from 10:00 am to 12:30pm with the possibility to meet online if the project requires so.
