The St. Mary’s Project in Art is a two-semester experience in which a student pursues sustained independent studio projects accompanied by written formulation of artistic concerns and research into related art and ideas. Students initiate the project, identify a clear focus in studio Art to be explored and propose a method of inquiry appropriate to the topic. A faculty mentor supervises the project research. The project must be shared with the College community through exhibition, poster presentation, or other means. Permission of the instructor.
