ART 601 - Capstone

Semester Hours: 3

Capstone for the art major is the development, completion, and formal presentation of a series of creative works that illustrate a student’s specific research interests, explored through studio art and a written artist statement. A written project proposal, describing the subject or topic and medium of choice, will be submitted in the spring prior to capstone. The capstone proposal may be adjusted during the fall semester of capstone based on the scope of production: scale and quantity, media, and exhibition responsibilities. Research projects should build on previous knowledge and skills while continuing to experiment with media, process, style, subject and content. The capstone exhibition will be held in the Foster Art Gallery during the spring semester following fall Capstone. A professional portfolio of documented works will be produced alongside finished works during the fall semester and finalized during the spring semester.
