Senior Studio: BFA Research

Course No. PTG 421M  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Lane Cooper

Required for all 4th year Painting majors and open as an elective to any senor-level student with a prerequisite of Intro to Painting or permission of the instructor or Painting Chair. This course focuses on developing the student’s individual work as it relates to their subject and their means of making work. Emphasis will be on the strategies for constructing the meaning of the work in terms of materials and the way the work is read by a viewer. Students will read work, develop and discuss intention through critiques and discourse. The goal is to develop an understanding of the criteria, standards and values promoted by the artist and how these come to be understood by their audience by exploring the relationship between subject, form, material and process as they relate to content. Offered fall.
