A forum for discussion of current issues in contemporary glass object-making. Students research the topics and artists important to their own development. Visiting artists, slide lectures, studio visits and exhibitions are incorporated. Students work with faculty to develop a personal body of work that represents depth and breadth of exploration of the medium. Mid-semester critiques and final semester review boards required. Before graduation, students are required to document their work and submit 10-20 slides of their final projects to the FA3D Department.
