This seminar course includes an introduction to professional organizations, professional development, and research on historical and contemporary ethical topics relating to art such as: professional careers and ethical codes, aesthetic theory and artistic practices, the creative process, and post graduate studies. This course is Writing Intensive (WI). Students and departmental faculty will formally review the student’s selected body of work. Students will assess and reflect upon strengths in their work and identify areas for additional studies in upper-level studio courses and/or research in preparation for their senior year. Substantial emphasis is placed on using these reflections to create an artist statement and artwork that is exhibition ready. Prerequisites: The student must have enough credit hours to be deemed a Junior and have declared a major in Art. All junior level art majors must complete this course prior to taking ART 497 Senior Exhibition (for Art Education and Studio Art majors) or ART 490 Senior Project in Graphic Design (for Graphic Design majors).
