Class Details

This Junior Seminar is an intensive class designed to provide art majors the opportunity to strengthen their ability to communicate clearly through the visual language by offering an overview of current themes and issues within the art world and beyond. The class is structured around critique and studio practice engaging in everyday tangible spaces, including the home, backyard, the studio, and street, as well as imaginative and virtual experiments that are designed to help further each student’s skillset, broaden their knowledge of contemporary art, and to offer critical and analytic experiences that deepen the student’s understanding of the role of art in society. What is at stake and how does one create deeply personal/political work? Your voices are now more important than ever and this class is an integral stepping stone in accessing these voices through visual, written, and spoken language. Through various texts, screenings, in-depth critique, and visiting artist lectures, the Junior Seminar finds a balance between self-exploration and group dynamics, between solo and collaborative art practices, between reflection and expression, and between resistance and care.
