Fall 2018-Spring 2019
Baton Rouge Center for the Creative Arts
For my senior capstone project, I chose to build a center for the creative arts in Baton Rouge. Using my experience at New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, I wanted to expand that into a community it would benefit.
Baton Rouge Center for Creative Arts is a pre-professional arts training center that offers students intensive instruction in their choice of 7 various art disciplines, while demanding simultaneous academic excellence.
PURPOSE AND GOALS
The undergraduate senior Thesis is a self-directed yearlong investigation. It begins with identifying a problem and proposed solution in the fall semester, and concludes with testing the solution through a design project in the spring (Robinson and Parman 2010). The Thesis combines skills from the classroom and studio, which I have acquired over the past 4 years and it is structured to encourage critical thinking, develop deeper knowledge, solve challenging problems, and advance my design skills.
Completing this yearlong Thesis provides an opportunity for me to…
- Understand how to apply research to a complex design problem.
- Explore design issues that I am passionate about.
- Become an expert in Universal Design.
- Become more knowledgeable on sustainability.
- Study and research how design impacts human behavior.
