Course Title
Creative Portfolio Workshop

Description of Course:

This course is designed to be utilized as a visual arts studio course for students to further their own experimental explorations of various medium applications and to build their portfolio. Participants will be challenged to work on stylistic development while investigating new contextual interfaces, collaborative interactions and the conceptual underpinnings of their work. There will be periodic group critiques as well as discussions on critical art topics presented through assigned readings. Inquiry into the formality and analysis of critique structures and procedures will be practiced through application and discussion. Participants in the course will make a presentation proposal of the direction they wish to pursue and a list of objectives. They will follow that course to a final presentation of work at the end of the semester. Students will not be required to come to class during designated studio days except for scheduled individual critiques.
