ARTS 418 Spring 2013 Senior Seminar

The purpose of the Senior Seminar is to strengthen ideas, develop formal skills and practice critical analysis while creating original art. Students may work in any medium in which they have prior experience. At the beginning of the class, each student defines his/her project and completes the necessary research. The following weeks are spent producing new work in preparation for an exhibition at the Williams College Museum of Art. The class will meet in large and small groups throughout the semester for critique and discussion. This course is for students who have the ideas and discipline to work independently; participants are expected to be highly motivated and to be exceptionally engaged in the class discourse. Students are responsible for buying their own materials. Evaluation is based on the following: consistency of effort, the quality of analysis in critique, the quality of the portfolio at midterm and the quality of the final portfolio.
Class Format: one full class meeting a week on Wednesday for discussion and workshop and one small group meeting a week for critique to be scheduled once class begins
Requirements/Evaluation: evaluation is based on the following: consistency of effort, the quality of analysis in critique, the quality of the portfolio at midterm and the quality of the final portfolio
