CRFT 411 Senior Projects II

College of Art, Media & Design School of Art

3 credits 90.0 hours
400 level undergraduate course

This is the culminating course in the Commons for Craft and Material Studies and is dominated by the development of the Senior Project - a coherent body of work that is accompanied by descriptive and interpretive writing. Class time provides a forum for the discussion of ideas and issues in which students play an active role and is augmented with guest lecturers and visiting artists. Students come together to prepare cooperatively for a public exhibition. Studio practice includes search, research, the continuing pursuit of professional goals and post-graduate plans, and engagement with alumni, gallerists, internships and the broader public. Emphasis is on the interdependency of all the arts and the contribution that a material sensibility makes to contemporary artistic ideology and practice. In completing a cohesive body of work for the Senior Exhibition, students must manage their time with self-discipline and an appropriate rigor. Students work responsibly toward a publicly engaged future.
