ART 199   Fine Arts Symposium (1 Hour)

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the art world. The students will see art and attend art talks from successful artists from around the country, the region, and/or the world. The Fine Art, Photo and Filmmaking Symposium has the holistic intent of teaching students the importance of learning from and participating in the art community at-large. This course requires students to attend artists’ talks, studio visits, film festivals, and/or exhibitions at screenings, galleries and/or museums. Students will be better informed about the current state of the industry and what it is like to work in the field. Students will prepare for art venues, exhibitions, and lectures before attending via a faculty-led briefing on what they are about to experience and what is expected for them to learn and observe.
