Industrial Design Courses

BFA Production + Independent Research: Research + Production.

Course No. SCU427M  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Barry Underwood | Christian Wulffen

As an extension of the Visual Arts and Technology Environment’s goal that students develop the ability to generate self-directed work, the Department of Sculpture seeks to provide each student with opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge to identify and sustain an independent practice. This course is designed to increase student awareness of the current art discourse and the ability to use that knowledge as a means of awareness within the production of their own work. This educational process embraces a variety of approaches to basic problem-solving skills measured against the contemporary practices of the discipline. In cooperation with a major-day faculty, students are expected to develop what is often their first significant independent work. For BFA students the focus of this course centers on artistic production, conditions of conveyance and Presentation. Required at the senior level for all sculpture majors for BFA development and open to junior level sculpture students as an elective offering for independent research open to all other students at the junior and senior levels. Offered spring.
