Each Semester, October and March
To allow third-year students the benefits of an all-faculty evaluation of their work, irrespective of performance in individual classes. Secondly, to provide the faculty with a tool for evaluating the effectiveness of the curriculum, and to guide the students progress during their final year of study.
Students will present for review a portfolio of their work together with a completed Student Information Form. Majors MUST participate in the review. Only those who have participated will be considered for inclusion in next year's Select Senior Shows.
Art majors only, BA and BS degrees.
BA Students, Studio and Graphic Design, who expect to graduate one full year from the semester of the review.
BS Students who expect to graduate three semesters from the semester of the review. For example, because student teaching is done the final semester of study, you must take part in the review in the fall of 2005 if you expect to graduate in spring 2007, thereby leaving one full year between the review and the Senior Shows.
Sign Up Sheet
So that we may arrange to accommodate all those students participating, please place your name on the sign-up sheet in the Art Office.
This includes 1) the timetable and instructions, 2) the student information form, which includes items such as courses taken and credits accumulated, and 3) a Sample Evaluation Form that each faculty will complete. Following the review, students will consult their advisors regarding the results of the evaluations and faculty recommendations. A copy of the comments will be provided to each participant.
Content of Portfolio
Approximately twelve pieces representing you best work. Include several recent drawings, examples from your elective sequence(s) or Graphic Design classes. Photographs (as part of the Graphic Design program) as well as pieces from other courses that illustrate the range and strengths of your work. Consult with your advisors and instructors as to which works to include.
