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 and Art History Department.
