1 P R O P O S A L New Majors and Revised Minor in Art The Department of Art seeks to change our major requirements in order to strengthen our students progression through the major and to address more directly the learning goals and objectives of the department. We currently have a standard 9-course Art major, which students may expand to a 12-course concentration in Studio Art or Art History. We are planning to dispense with the 9-course major and the 12-course concentrations. We hereby propose these two 10- course majors: 1. STUDIO ART MAJOR a. There will be two possible gateway/prerequisite courses for the studio major. The first will be a revamping of our current foundations of studio art, renamed Introduction to Studio Art. The second will be a new 100-level drawing course. Students will be required to take either one as an introduction to the major. Each will also serve as a prerequisite for all 200-level studio courses. b. Students will be required to take three (rather than the previous five) art history courses: the new 100-level Approaches to Art History, one 200-level course (photo concentrators will be required to take one history of photography course at the 200 or 300 level); and one 300- or 400-level art history course. c. Students must complete four courses in a single medium. This will provide the depth of the studio major. d. Students must complete at least two courses outside their medium of choice. This will provide the breadth within the major. e. Senior capstone: This is a new one-credit, two-semester course that will be required of all art majors. It will include practical skills in the fall and lead to the senior exhibition in the spring. Note: The capstone must be taken in conjunction with a studio course or independent study in each student s area of concentration during the senior year. 2. ART HISTORY MAJOR a. The gateway course for this major will be a new, one-semester, 100-level course, Approaches to Art History, which introduces students to fundamental art-historical skills (e.g., visual analysis, art in socio-historical context). This course will be taught by the art history faculty in multiple sections every semester. b. Students intermediate courses in the major will offer historical breadth (200- and 300-level lecture courses) and research depth (400-level seminars). c. Senior capstone: all art history majors will enroll in Art 494, Senior Research Seminar, in the fall of their senior year. This course is described below.

2 New Catalog Copy for Major Requirements in Art Requirements for the Major in Studio Art (10 courses + one-credit senior capstone) Foundational Studies (Choice of one of two courses. Either course will serve as a prerequisite for all 200-level studio courses) 131 Introduction to Studio Art 1xx Drawing Studio Depth (Four courses in a single medium (Painting, Photography, Printmaking, or Sculpture)) Studio Breadth (Two courses in a medium outside the studio concentration) Art History (Three courses) 101 Approaches to Art History 200-level course (photography concentrators must take one history of photography course) 300- or 400-level course Senior Capstone (Fall and Spring Semester one-credit for both)* 4xx Studio Capstone (Fall) 4xx Studio Capstone (Spring) *This is a new one-credit, two-semester course that will be required of all art majors. It will include practical skills in the fall and lead to the senior exhibition in the spring. Please Note: This capstone must be taken in conjunction with a studio course or independent study in each student s area of concentration during the senior year. Requirements for the Major in Art History (10 courses) Foundational Studies (2 courses, to be taken early in a student s training) 100-level studio course, either 1xx (Drawing) or 131 (Introduction to Studio Art) 101 Approaches to Art History Historical Breadth (5 lecture/survey courses at the 200 or 300 level) One course in each of the following areas: Area 1: Art before ca (201, 273*, 311, 313, 314) Area 2: Art ca (202, 274*, 251, 276*, 331, 332, 333, 376*) Area 3: Art after ca (252, 256*, 258, 285) 2

3 Two additional art history courses at the 200/300 level. * At least two of the five courses in this category must cover material outside the Euro-American traditions. When courses cut across the time periods listed above, the Chair will assign them to an appropriate category for the major. One-time offerings or occasional courses that do not appear in the list above may be included in the major upon approval by the Chair. Research Depth (seminars at the 400 level) Two seminars in any configuration. Senior Capstone (AR494, required in the fall of the senior year) Students planning to continue the study of art or art history in graduate school should confer with their advisors to be sure that they have planned a substantial and adequate course of study. Art history graduate programs generally require reading proficiency in two foreign languages. The point scale for retention of the major applies to courses taken in the department. No requirement for the major may be taken satisfactory/unsatisfactory. Rationale for the Changes in Studio Art In the past, the studio art major required five art history courses. Current studio faculty feel that five was excessive, left little space in the major for exploring other mediums, and kept many students interested in studio art from becoming majors. Our new major will require three art history courses, give students a choice for their prerequisite introductory course, require exploration across mediums, and allow for an expanded senior studio experience that will be interdisciplinary and comprehensive. We also feel that there was breadth missing in the major, which resulted in many students studying only a single medium through their entire undergraduate career. The senior capstone in Studio Art will take place over the fall and spring semester of each major s career. The fall session will involve a variety of practical skills for studio artists including website construction, résumé writing, introduction to graduate and post-baccalaureate programs, and research into a variety of employment opportunities. The fall semester will also include participation in the newly endowed Mirken program that will allow students to participate (along with art history majors and faculty from both areas) in a four-day trip to either Boston, New York, or Washington D.C., to meet with a variety of professionals in the visual arts fields. The spring semester will be dedicated to preparing for the senior exhibition through interdisciplinary critiques, the writing of professional artist statements, and oral presentation and defense of visual scholarship/research. This laboratory class will be capped at 12 students and will be led by a single faculty member each semester (this position will rotate among studio faculty) with the 3

4 participation of other studio and art history faculty as well as museum staff when available and appropriate. The capstone will earn one credit at the end of the second semester. Rationale for the Changes in Art History 1. Introductory Art History Course: General description: The new 100-level course, Approaches to Art History, will prepare students for subsequent art history courses by focusing on basic art-historical skills. Rather than offering a broad historical survey, this course will be framed by 5-6 thematic units that teach students how to analyze visual and written texts and to understand art in socio-historical context. Although individual instructors may vary their content, the thematic units and mode of assessment will be consistent across the course sections. This course will make frequent use of objects in the Colby College Museum of Art. It may be used to fulfill the Arts distribution requirement for non-art majors. Logistics: This course will be taught every semester in at least two sections of 20 students each; in these sections, students can actively discuss their visual experiences, make oral presentations, and write critically about art. One (or more) sections of the course could be designed to fulfill the W1 writing requirement for first-year students. Learning goals: This introductory level course will focus on the department s stated learning goal of translating visual experience into written and oral expression through the identification and contextual interpretation of art. 2. Historical Breadth General description: The central core of the major will require students to learn about art history in many historical, geographic, and cultural contexts. Five of the required courses will be lecture-based classes at the 200 and 300 levels that situate art in a broad historical context, typically addressing works from more than one century, allowing our students to develop knowledge of several major areas of art history. In an effort to embrace a more global approach to art history, we have expanded the geographical and cultural breadth of our offerings at the 200 and 300 level and allowed courses focused on different parts of the world to sit within a given temporal category (e.g., Area 1 includes ancient Asian art, ancient European art, and ancient Near Eastern and Mediterranean art). Further, students will be required to take at least two courses outside the Euro-American traditions. Logistics: So that we can serve students from across the college, any 3- or 4-credit course offered at the 200 level will have no prerequisites and will generally fulfill the Arts distribution requirement. Our current 100-level art history surveys ( (Western); (Asian) will be renumbered at the 200-level. Current 300-level courses can move to the 200 level or remain at the 300 level, depending on whether they need to carry a prerequisite. Courses in this category with a substantial writing component may be designed to meet the W2 writing requirement. Learning goals: Provide students with familiarity with historical traditions, research and curatorial skills, and art historical literature. 3. Research Depth General description: Students will develop depth in art-historical practices, traditions, and problems in seminars at the 400 level. These courses, capped at students, focus 4

5 on research, writing, and oral presentation. Students in seminars will produce some kind of substantial research project. Logistics: Seminars previously offered at the 300 level will be renumbered to the 400 level. Seminars will generally carry a prerequisite and may be designed to meet the W3 writing requirement. Learning goals: Further develop the skills taught at the 100, 200, and 300 levels, but focus on building research and curatorial skills, and on reading more deeply in art historical literature. 4. Capstone General description: We have not previously required a capstone experience for all students in the Art major, as noted by our most recent overseers report. The capstone will improve our students learning in the major by teaching them to develop a major research paper, ideally based on a project that they have undertaken earlier in their studies at Colby. Logistics: In the fall of their senior year, all art history majors will be required to take the Senior Research Seminar, which will be capped at 12 seats. Multiple sections of the capstone can be offered if enrollment exceeds this maximum. The capstone can be open to minors if there are spaces available. The lead instructor of the senior seminar will rotate each year, but the art history faculty as a whole will develop guidelines for the course to foster continuity in the student experience. The instructor of record will be responsible for organizing the research process and for reading and grading all submitted work, but students will need to seek the advice of other faculty members who have expertise in their chosen area of research. Learning goals: Consolidate and expand students research and curatorial skills as well as deepen their knowledge of art-historical literature. Further, this course will create a valuable sense of community among our senior majors and offer them structured guidance through an independent research project. ART MINOR An art minor is available and should be constructed according to the student s interests and on the advice of an Art Department faculty member. The art minor requires at least seven courses including AR131 (Introduction to studio art) OR ARxxx (Drawing), AR101 (Approaches to Art History), at least one art history course at the 200- or 300-level, and four additional graded courses (in studio and/or art history at the 200-level or above. 5
