ART 493/494: St. Mary's Project in Studio Art back to courses index
All Studio Faculty
This course provides a structured environment in which students explore and develop their own artistic interests in the context of exchange with fellow seminar members and a faculty mentor. In a selected area of focus (drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, or combined media) students pursue sustained independent studio projects accompanied by written formulation of artistic concerns and research into related art and ideas. Consult the Department of Art and Art History's guidelines for the St. Mary's Project. Prerequisite: one 300-level studio art course in the student's chosen area of focus and the approval of the instructor and Chair of the Art Department.
In this course students continue to develop and produce a body of self-generated studio work culminating in a public exhibition. This exhibition will be accompanied by a written statement of goals placed within an art historical context and a public lecture that addresses the project's expressive significance and its relationship to contemporary art and art theory. Consult the Department of Art and Art History's guidelines for the St. Mary's Project. This course replaces ART 490. Prerequisite: ART 493
