Advanced Art Media Exploration
This Independent Study opportunity is for those art students who wish to focus on independent, advanced work in the media of their choosing.
Instructor will offer guidance and recommendations to determine which topic or media will be in focus for the semester. Ideas, resources, schedules, and goals will be discussed upon initial meeting.

Students will be asked to evaluate their own work using a rubric provided by the instructor. The instructor will provide feedback regarding technique, composition, and visual impact. Students and instructor will meet 3-5 times per semester via live video chat. All additional communication will occur via email.
