Senior seminar is a capstone course for the studio art major. Students meet weekly for in-depth discussions concerning their artwork, which may involve technique, material choices, or conceptual refinement. Throughout the term there are scheduled critiques, led by faculty and invited guest critics. In addition to creating artwork, there are two contextual assignment requirements: a source presentation and a written artist statement. Within this course structure, students also prepare for a thesis exhibition that takes place at the end of the semester in either an on-campus or off-campus gallery setting.
