BFA Thesis Portfolios

The Rose - by Claire Redman
Dawson Park Sign - by Nathan Stang

During the second semester of the senior BFA year at PNCA, students produce a dynamic body of work accompanied by a written paper that meaningfully explores a significant and self-defined issue or concept. It represents an opportunity for students to devote an entire semester to a single idea or process. Faculty members act as mentors, helping students to develop command of their vision and an awareness of the historic and social context of their work.

Thesis projects can range from jewelry that comments on honeybee colony collapse to staged meals and table settings inspired by memories of loved ones, from installations that recreate cross-country journeys to gospel music performances that explore alternative forms of creative expression. Whatever the project, the rigorous thesis experience prepares students for the transition from the college environment to a life of sustained creative practice.
