Visual Arts

Art History, Cultures of Display, and Studio practices that include ceramics, drawing, intermedia, painting, photo-based media, printmaking, and sculpture – discover your favourite mode of study and expression while working in modern and spacious studio facilities.

Realize. Art is everywhere.

The visual arts program at the University of Regina is situated in a community with a strong tradition of visual arts programming, allowing you to interact with local art galleries, art centres, and artists throughout your degree.

No matter your medium or major, your studies will be grounded in a breadth of studio and art historical practices, which provide a solid understanding and context for your work.

The Fifth Parallel Art Gallery, our student-run gallery on campus, provides an opportunity for you to gain invaluable experience during your studies.
