ART 464 3K - Art Seminar

Minimum Credit(s) Awarded: 3
Maximum Credit(s) Awarded: 3

This course is designed to provide upper-level students with majors in Art or Art and Design Teaching, and minors in Art History, with the opportunity to consider and discuss key questions and issues in the field of visual arts. The course explores various art-based strategies for addressing these questions. Through reading and discussion of contemporary art theory, writings in art history and criticism, and exploration of current trends in art, students will gain a deeper understanding of how artists and other visual arts professionals engage with contemporary cultural questions and social issues in creative ways. Students will develop the aptitude and confidence to express their responses to these questions and issues in spoken, written, and visual form, and will also increase their capacity to reflect upon these responses. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the nuts and bolts of creating an artist’s professional practice, including resume and portfolio preparation, how to organize an exhibition, writing proposals, and applying to graduate school. The course will also focus on writing as a significant aspect of visual art practice through critical writing, written responses to exhibitions and other arts events, and the preparation of one’s artist statement. The course also emphasizes the importance of speaking about one’s work and the work of other artists through gallery talks and other formal and informal presentations. The Senior Exhibition, a requirement for Art majors and Art and Design Teaching majors, is a key component of this course.
