Core 6: BFA Statement + Exhibition

Course No. CDE 401  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Kathy Buszkiewicz

A hybrid seminar/studio course that builds on the research and thesis work developed in Core 5. Research, exploration, and experimentation culminate with the presentation of the statement and the BFA exhibition. The seminar includes discussions, presentations, readings, and writing assignments, which vary to recognize the direction of the group and formal issues and conceptual challenges. The subject, research, and writing for the thesis and BFA statement are further developed during the spring semester with the statement and body of work completed for the BFA exhibition and review. The course includes field trips and artist studio visits to offer the students critical, historical, and contemporary points of reflection. The course also addresses the planning and preparation toward career goals including goals statements, resume review, and digital presentations by each senior. Required of all graduating Craft + Design majors. Offered spring. Open to electives.
