Department of Visual Arts

The Department of Visual Arts lets students build a solid foundation in studio art practice and an in-depth study of art history.

Our programs integrate the benefits of a liberal arts education within a program of artistic growth that provides students with finely honed critical and analytical abilities along with their development as a practicing artist.

Students may focus on sculpture, ceramics, painting, drawing, print media, photography, art history, cultures of display, or any number of fascinating expressive media. Or they can choose to practice across traditional mediums.

Small classes taught by experienced faculty who are professional artists, in bright, spacious, modern facilities ensure the best possible learning environment for Visual Arts students.

Visual Arts provides an environment and experiences enriched with cultural activities available through local art galleries, field trips to major art centres, and by visiting artists who share ideas and concepts of their art through workshops and lectures.
