In contrast to other more assignment based studio classes, Core Studio: Thesis is a space for students to develop works independently in their studio both semesters of senior year. Faculty will engage with students in weekly one-on-one conversations to encourage and support this process. All students will be asked to take ownership of their artwork and need to be able to discuss the content and rationale of their process and outcome with intelligence and commitment. In this final semester, Core Studio: Thesis will help guide students in their studio thesis work as they approach the Senior Show and it will foster independent thinking and working in the studio. Regardless of how many old and new mediums students have explored before this semester, or whether they are currently “defined” by a single discipline (painter, sculptor, printmaker, photographer, videographer, performer), in this class all art making is seen and encouraged as an integrated experience that allows for a multiplicity of media used by an individual student. Research is an essential element of this process. Through self-directed research and autonomous work in the studio, students will continue to develop an increasing awareness of their working process and the source and potential of their own ideas. In addition to the one-on-one weekly studio visits with faculty, there will be group discussions and critiques, as well as final reviews during review week.
