All studio art majors (and interested photography majors) who are engaged in the Senior Project will meet for a weekly seminar/critique/discussion. The aim of the meeting will be to create a forum for the continual exchange of views and ideas among the senior students and to encourage and develop skill in articulating ideas in speech and writing. Its form and subject will change week to week, but will include writing assignments (toward "Word and Image" catalogue); group critiques and discussion of student work; discussion of exhibitions on campus; discussion with guest speakers. All studio art seniors must participate.
