About This Course
This course provides the opportunity to engage in visual and contextual analysis of art while investigating a topic of interest in the area of art history, art studio, or curatorial studies. This course will consist of formal and informal critiques of independent projects; as well as the development of conceptual writing for supporting documentation of personal work. This course serves to keep majors on track and accustomed to the process of exhibiting work as well as their eventual participation in ART495 Senior Thesis. The course is open to all students and may be counted toward the art major or minor. This course may be repeated. ART494 is to be taken in the final year of study for Art Majors, serving as the prerequisite for ART495 Senior Thesis. Note: ART394 is not a prerequisite for ART494 but rather serves as an opportunity for students to participate in the course before their senior year.
