Junior Seminar

This cross-disciplinary seminar will examine how to develop a studio-based practice that includes directed investigations around individual interests and the role of research in developing ideas. Critiques will be used to refine the way the work is presented and to foster the ability to give thoughtful, meaningful feedback to other students. Through fieldtrips, guest artists, readings, individual meetings and visits to the MFA studios in San Francisco we will consider the artist's studio practice, the working process, the presentation of work and the larger community of artists in the Bay Area. This class will serve to prepare the students for the Junior Review and to have an individual studio in the senior year. Prerequisite: Junior Standing
