GENERAL INFORMATION

Marygrove College’s Art Department  believes that an education in the visual arts should consist of the development and understanding of artistic skills, associated theories of creating art, art history and the importance of building a personal aesthetic voice. An integral part of this philosophy focuses on developing within our students the dedication and desire needed to move forward in their artistic endeavors while building a commitment to art as a life-long process.

With an emphasis on leadership through practice, participation in Marygrove’s art program requires an open mind, an understanding of artistic skills, associated theories of creating art, art history and the importance of building a personal aesthetic and the linkage between the visual arts and the other disciplines encountered in the liberal arts experience. Our curriculum provides students with a well-rounded foundation in the process of making art by emphasizing everything from developing traditional skills to experimenting with conceptual approaches.

Our small class size allows for individual attention and interaction with a faculty that consist of practicing, professional artists and educators. The department has eight student studios, a student gallery, a major exhibition space and MAO, an active student art association. The Gallery at Marygrove showcases four to five major exhibitions a year as well as the All Student Exhibition, Student Summer Challenge and the Senior Degree Exhibitions. The department also sponsors a variety of guest lectures and a number of Master Classes throughout the year.

Once core requirements are met, our students can tailor their education to align with their interests. B.A. students are not required to concentrate in any one area but are encouraged to create a cohesive body of work. All B.F.A. candidates are required to apply and be accepted into the B.F.A. program and adopt a more directed plan of work. By emphasizing leadership through practice, we encourage our students to actively interact with the greater art community.  All students develop a history of presentation and community involvement through participation in all student exhibitions, leading to the Senior Degree Exhibition, and by active membership in the student art association. In addition, the Art Department provides numerous opportunities for students to participate in socially-engaged arts scholarship through on-campus and in-community self-directed arts programming. These programs give students the ability to design and produce arts activist works that positively impact a variety of communities.

SPECIAL ELEMENTS OF THE PROGRAM

The co-op program combines classroom and practi­cal work experience. As a co-op student, you will gain valuable experience in a professional work environ­ment. Some positions may be paid while others are on a volunteer basis. You may also opt to receive college credit for prior professional work.

Consortium

You may enrich your major by electing studio courses through the Consortium or in summer sessions at other institutions. However, you are required to take the core sequence at Marygrove. If you wish to take courses at other institutions, you must com­plete a guest student application and obtain written approval from the department prior to registering. This must be done to ensure that the credits you earn may be applied to your degree.

Academic Performance

Only courses with a grade of C or higher may be ap­plied in fulfillment of the major requirements. Students are advised into beginning classes upon admissions. After three art studio courses, students meet with faculty to determine if they can continue in the program. A BFA interview is conducted in the junior year (if required).

Transfer Students

If you transfer from another institution into the depart­ment as an art major, you must complete at least 20 hours of credit in the department before graduating. As a transfer student, you will be asked to complete specific studio problems, as well as present a portfolio of recent work to determine placement in departmental courses.

Senior Seminar

All majors are required to take ART496 the fall of their senior year. This is considered the capstone course for the department. Students will receive a “Y” grade for that course and final grading will be determined by the quality and quantity of work in the student’s senior exhibition.

Opportunity

Those students who are interested in internships should see their advisors. Internships can be arranged with local organizations. Each year, students are eligible to participate in a juried student exhibition. Awards are given for exceptional work. Scholarships are available for incoming freshman.

Three awards are distributed annually for quality of work: Outstanding Art Student (senior standing); Suzanne Fleming IHM Award, and the Sophomore Award.
