Current Students

The Senior Project is a two-semester course during the senior year. Students must be signed into these classes by the Chair of the Department of Fine Arts. During this year, students will be part of at least three departmental critiques of their work. Each student will be asked to partake in discussions of other student’s work during the critiques. Students will also be asked to be part of seminars, attend visiting artist’s lectures and demonstrations, visit exhibitions, and present and express ideas about their art work to other seniors. Seniors must also work closely with a full-time department faculty member as an advisor in their concentration area. Evaluations of senior work will be based on the following criteria:

  • Body of original and ambitious work
  • Evidence of depth of thought
  • Evidence of research
  • Keeping abreast of new developments in the field
  • Sufficient technical virtuosity
  • Ability to explain ideas as they pertain to your work
  • Participation in all departmental senior events
  • Professional Attitude
