As their senior thesis requirement, studio art majors at Bates create a substantial and cohesive body of work through studio practice and critical inquiry. The yearlong process is overseen by faculty and culminates in this exhibition.

The requirement allows students to develop independence and consistency. They achieve greater depth with their artwork and learn to work both critically and productively.
