Writing Intensive Course Information

The purpose of this capstone class is to integrate the critical thinking students have done during their studies at MU with new practical knowledge to enable them to move out into the world as artists on their own. Course objects include: Writing and thinking not only about an artist's own work and the larger themes within art and design but also about their own. This will include attending lectures and shows, as well as watching films about other artists and discussing readings. Each of these events will include the student crafting a written response to the experience. Learning to present oneself professionally as an artist or designer through instruction on artist statements; resumes; photographing one's work; assembling portfolios; and applying for jobs, grants, residencies, & graduate school. This class will organize, publicize, and hang the Senior Show. Class time will be devoted to forming committees and making decisions about how to produce this exhibition.
I am not making changes to the course at this time. Last year's structure was very successful.

Because the class is based on critical thinking, students will be evaluated on their creative analyses and detailed investigations of the work of other artists as well as their own. Most of the assignments function in this manner. The professional practice writing will be based on individual needs.
Artist lecture, gallery show, and reading responses are assigned about every other week. Other professional practicies will be distributed evenly throughout the semester. The residency/grant/grad school application assignment will be the final project for the semester.

I will have a graduate assistant assigned from either the Art, Art History, or English departments if the enrollment is 20+ students. The Art Department Chair will make the final selection. I will train them by "norming" each assignment in conjunction with them.
