Monday 05:30 PM - 08:30 PM

Art Workshop 107

In this course, advanced studio art students will focus on creating, defining, and refining their own independent art projects within the structure of the seminar format. Each student will pursue, develop, and refine his or her own subject matter and choice of materials, in consultation with the instructor. The course will allow students to delve deeply into their individual interests while enjoying the support and conversation of peers and the instructor, to produce art that reflects their serious and professional pursuits.

This is a studio drawing class. Students will choose whichever media they feel will best represent their intentions. During each class, the instructor will speak with students, to refine direction and to assess progress. There will be a group critique every third week; in addition, students will be encouraged to critique informally and discuss each other's work, when invited.

Students will consult with the instructor to produce a plan of work, participate in a final critique and presentation and submit a portfolio at the end of the term. Grading will be based on the students' active, serious, and committed studio participation and involvement in fulfilling the intent of the course.

For this advanced drawing course, students are expected to have drawing experience through previous course work or equivalent. Students may contact the instructor with questions about the course and its requirements by sending e-mail to the GLSP office at glsinquire@wesleyan.edu.
