Drawing & Painting majors meet with a faculty panel in order to develop a thesis-based body of work. Drawing upon a thesis project proposal submitted to faculty at the beginning of the course, students engage in research and present their studio work regularly for peer and faculty reviews and discussions. The foundation of a professional practice is established through participation in lectures by visiting artists, gallery visits and panel discussions. This is a six-hour course that continues in the winter semester, resulting in a coherent body of work supported by an artist's statement, written thesis paper and oral presentation.
