Ideas, Influences and Vision: Building a Body of Work

Listed in: Art and the History of Art, as ARHA-329

Formerly listed as: ARHA-29


Betsey A. Garand (Section 01)
Carol W. Keller (Section 01)


An advanced level interdisciplinary studio course focused on the development of a personal and independent body of work, and the technical and conceptual problems associated with such a project.  Students concentrating in any visual medium or across mediums are welcome and encouraged to enroll. Each student, in consultation with the professors, will design a semester-long project.  This project will result in a final body of work or series that reflects the student’s ideas, influences and personal vision.  In addition to production of this extended independent project, course work will consist of weekly group critiques, historical and topical readings, discussions, field trips and in-class studio experiments. This course is highly recommended for any ARHA major considering a senior honors project with a concentration in studio; however, it is open to any student having the necessary prerequisites.  

Requisite: Two introductory level studio courses and one intermediate level studio course. Admission with consent of the instructor.  Limited to 10 students. Fall semester. Resident Artist Garand and Professor Keller.

If Overenrolled: Preference will be given to students majoring in Art and the History of Art with a concentration in Studio.
