This course is designed for students who have taken at least two previous arts and design related courses and are prepared to pursue an in-depth project.

This seminar combines academic study and studio work, and explores theory and practice related to various visual arts disciplines. The course will provide individual guidance and group critiques for students from various disciplines to meet, present and discuss their work.

Contemporary critical issues are addresses through readings, screenings/slides, and discussions. We will explore how an artist builds a body of work and discuss working processes and issues in art and society. The course will include field trips and visiting artists, when available and pertinent. Students will be evaluated on their progress towards their goals and participation in discussions and critiques.

Students may work in video, painting, photography, installation, sculpture, 2-D, or hybrid forms, but students should already have the basic skills required for their chosen project(s).
