Important Information

All students who choose to minor, major or study an area of art must present a portfolio of artwork from their studies in high school, from private instruction, or done on their own for videotaping early in their first semester of study. Thereafter, artwork from ART 101, ART 120, ART 202 and ART 221 will be videotaped to document progress or lack of progress for accreditation, assessment and evaluation purposes.

Sophomore Review

Art students who are pursuing an art major (36 hours) or art area (48 hours) or Bachelor of Fine Arts will have successfully completed four foundations courses (ART 101, ART 102, ART 202, and ART 221) with a G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher OR the student will have completed 56 credit hours of study, whichever option occurs first.

The student will present a portfolio of work to the Art faculty within three weeks of the end of the semester when either of the above criteria is met. The portfolio will show ambition of concept/ideas, growth of craftsmanship/techniques, competency of design and personal motivation. Twelve to 15 pieces must be shown. These may be pieces of actual work or images captured in an acceptable electronic format. With either submission, the student is expected to present a brief written statement about each work and be able to explain it to the Art faculty.

If the student’s work is not acceptable to pass the sophomore review, the student may retake a class in order to produce stronger work to be shown in a second review the following semester. If work does not pass two consecutive review sessions, the student will need to pursue an art minor (24 hours) and choose another major. No student can proceed to a major of art study with a failing review. This process is to ensure that students are serious about their artwork and competent to finish the course of study in art successfully.
