DMA 269 The Maker’s Discourse Graduate Seminar

This seminar discusses numerous approaches to writing, develop strategies for making writing a more fluid act of making rather than a mostly static textual exercise. It engages with the difference between architectonic planning and emergent structures, explores the tradition of the artist’s interview, and analyzes best practices for Web publishing. As well, the seminar models strategies for demoing work, mastering oral presentations, and overcoming performance anxiety.

DMA 404 – Graduate Tutorial

The tutorial is offered as a central part of the comprehensive MFA program. Discussions, readings, critiques and other interactions are designed to encourage and refine the student’s concentrated body of work to be presented in a master of fine arts exhibition. An accompanying record of the exhibition, including documentation appropriate to the media, for example, images of physical work, research material, other visual material, a written statement, and other materials as determined by the student’s Graduate Thesis Committee, is also required, and will be discussed and critiqued in tutorial.
