The Art and Design Capstone is a year-long process in which students are encouraged to explore new materials, investigate diverse concepts, and cultivate new ideas. Through exploration, experimentation, collaboration, and critique, concepts become reality in the form of definitive bodies of work. The Art and Design faculty encourage a personal growth mindset for both the individual and the artist/designer that fosters the conceptual development of projects, empowering students to create a personal vision and bring it into the world.
