The Studio Art Program courses include exposure to contemporary practice, visual culture theory, and historical perspectives for the visual arts. Students majoring in Studio Art develop an area of concentration that will be the focus of their Senior Seminar. This seminar workshop course introduces all students to professional standards and opportunities in the visual art world, provides individual and group critiquing, and allows students to develop their own bodies of visual work.
The Senior Seminar culminates in a Senior Art and Design exhibit in the SXU Gallery. This group-venture calls for original individual work from each student, plus the cooperative effort of designing publicity materials and installing a professional show.
