The Southland Institute (for critical, durational, and typographic post-studio practices) is dedicated to exploring, identifying, and implementing meaningful, affordable, sustainable alternatives to higher education in art and design in the United States.
It is an unaccredited postgraduate workshop and evolving public online repository of educational resources, built around a central curricular helix consisting of the tools, processes, histories, and discourses of typography and critical art-making. It is also a forum for inquiry into the processes, potentials, and complications of higher education and its attendant structures and systems.
The Southland Institute is located in Los Angeles, CA

Take care of self, family, pets. Life comes first.
Take tools and supplies from school you need to make your work at home.
Schools might be closed down.
Set up a little corner, table, desk where you can work at home/hotel.
Prioritize work that is manageable in your temporary setup. I suggest the following hierarchy of ease:
1. Work digitally, all you need is your device for now, print later.
2. Work with dry materials (pencils, pastels) that need minimum cleanup
3. Work with water-based materials that don't off-gas toxic fumes
4. Work outdoors if you must use off-gassing materials
5. Projects that need special equipment or cumbersome/risky home setups can wait.
Adapt your projects to use common everyday household tools and supplies.
Telecommunication is great, use it but also take this opportunity to develop self-discipline and dedication to manage your own time and projects.
