ART 385 Junior Studio 1
This major studio class for Studio Art BA and BFA juniors gives students the opportunity to work with increased independence in a variety of disciplines including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, ceramics and mixed 2D and 3D media. Individual choices of media execution and subject are encouraged through a series of open-ended problems given over both the fall and spring semesters. The problems are designed to invite a wide variety of responses from each student. Group critique is an integral component to the course. The philosophy and structure of the Junior Studio places a high priority on the establishment of an active and reflective relationship between an individual and his/her work. Individual studio space is provided in order to reinforce independent thinking and to help students establish a rapport with the studio life of a fine artist.
