The Senior Program

All senior art majors embark on an intensive two-semester senior project. The culmination of the year’s work is the annual spring student exhibition in Hamilton’s Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art. As an entering senior concentrator students are assigned a semi-private studio space. The success of this program depends on rigorous pursuit of independent production of works of art, both object based and visual incidents.

Faculty and peers provide students with strategies for getting started and for maintaining stamina, but the responsibility for production rests with the student artists. Individual group critiques provide opportunities for students to discuss works-in-progress with their peers and faculty members. Studio work is further supplemented with lectures, technical demonstrations, discussions, research and engagement with visiting artists and those artists’ studio practices.
