General Information - Directed Studio Research and Professional Practice

FAVA 4125  Directed Studio Research and Professional Practice


Restricted to BFA (Honours) students in their final year of study and successful completion of the BFA Portfolio Assessment.


Four hours of studio work per week for two terms.




In this studio-based course, students will develop a self-directed body of work based on their own research and will produce a thesis that will contextualize their studio practice in areas of contemporary thought, as well as address relevant historical references. Intensive studio production will be supported by full-faculty and peer critiques, written work, visiting speakers, and workshops. Topics such as grant writing, promotion, and exhibition opportunities will prepare students for a professional practice in the arts.
