This is Peddie’s Signature course in the Visual Arts – our most advanced and independent offering. It begins with an intensive series of exercises designed to encourage creative thinking. At the beginning of the winter term each student defines a personal concentration to explore in depth for the remainder of the year. The course is designed for self-motivated and resourceful students who are willing to push themselves beyond the limits of conventional art and to engage in rigorous dialogue about their work. In addition to individual meetings with the instructors, students will gather regularly for group critiques and presentations about contemporary artists for inspiration. Students exhibit their work in the Honors Thesis Exhibit in May.
