CRFT 410 Senior Projects I

College of Art, Media & Design School of Art

3 credits 90.0 hours
400 level undergraduate course

This is the third course in the Craft and Material Studies Commons. Students continue to refine their understanding of their studio engagement as material artists, while the focus shifts to each students’ pursuit of a rigorous studio practice. Faculty act as critics and guides, helping students understand their aesthetic impulses while honing personal approaches to materials and process. Students research the work of other artists, write a grant proposal and develop an artist’s statement that articulates their artistic intent. They personally engage with and respond to a diversity of ideas, including cross-disciplinary and collaborative work. They must grapple with what they make and understand why they are engaged in the material arts. Like Junior Studio 1 and 2, Senior Projects is a studio-based, content-oriented course. Students are expected to work in studio during class and open studio hours. Students have access to studios where they have completed or are currently taking a discipline-specific course. This course is only open to students who have earned a grade of C or better in Junior Studio 2.
