SP: Building a Body of Work

Senior Project shifts the focus of art making from assignment-based projects to self-directed studio work. Seniors work independently on building a cohesive and conceptually sound body of work, culminating in the senior exhibition. Through group dialogue and critique, students sharpen their aesthetic perceptions, research their conceptual concerns, and refine the content of their work. Further, students develop strategies for pursuing a professional career in the arts including writing effective resumes and artist statements, titling work, and creating a professional web presence. First semester seniors prepare formal proposals for their exhibitions and second semester students prepare for the Textiles Senior Reviews.
