ADVANCED MEDIA PROJECTS is a course Christensen offers every spring. This course is a pre-cursor to Senior Studio and Thesis, the Oberlin Studio Art Department’s capstone course. Students design a semester-long art project, and we have three artists from the outside world come to critique the students’ work at points throughout the semester. These critiques serve as deadlines for the students, while they learn to sustain a long-term project, developing deadlines, initiatives, and ultimately, developing their practice. Past visiting artists to this class include Cory Arcangel, Howie Chen, Alan Licht, Chris Lynn, Ayanah Moor, Juan William Chavez, Penny Lane, and Nick Hallett.
