Supplemental Information for BFA with a Major in Printmaking

Portfolio Reviews for Printmaking Majors

Throughout their enrollment in printmaking courses at UNT, students will be involved in frequent individual and group critiques to provide constructive criticism and experience in verbalizing their conceptual and technical efforts. The following competencies will be developed:

Mid-Point Review

To confirm the student's preparation for advanced studio work, before completing 6 hours of 3000-level printmaking courses, each printmaking major must schedule a review of their work with printmaking faculty. The review will consist of:

Students who do not pass the review may request permission to resubmit work for review the following semester. Failure to pass the review after three attempts indicates low potential for success in the program and will automatically eliminate the student from the printmaking program.

Transfer Credit

Special arrangements will be made to review the work of students transferring printmaking credit from another institution. Such students must have their work reviewed during their first semester at UNT in order to be admitted to further printmaking classes.

Senior Exit Review

A portfolio or final review is required of all seniors in the School of Visual Arts prior to graduation in order to establish that all basic competencies in the major are met. For printmaking majors, this review occurs during the student's final enrollment in ART 4805, Printmaking Studio. Graduating seniors should identify themselves to their instructor during the first week of class. Reviews are not conducted during summer sessions. Students should not take their portfolio review course at this time. Failure to participate in the review or presentation of unsatisfactory work will result in a grade of F or I in the course and will delay graduation.

Results

Record of success in passing each review will be furnished to the student and recorded for the School of Visual Arts.
