Program Description

In this program, students develop their creative abilities and artistic skills using the latest digital tools and a variety of traditional media. Through a combination of creative course content and hands-on studio practice, students develop their interests and skills in a variety of techniques and media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, digital art, 3D modelling, 3D printing, photography, and extended reality (VR, AR) that help bring their artistic vision to life. Experiential art studios and unique media labs provide a hands-on environment to foster essential visual art skills. In our Campus Gallery, students engage with the work of contemporary artists as well as have opportunities to showcase their own work.

Additional Info

To be successful in this program, students are required to purchase art materials such as paints and canvas on an ongoing basis. In addition, a personal tablet and stylus are required for digital drawing. We recommend an Apple product to run the app, Procreate. Visit the Procreate website to find out which iPads can run the latest software version The Procreate website also provides advice on how to get earlier versions of the software for older devices. Students can use an equivalent Android tablet and stylus. We will recommend a different drawing app, as Procreate does not run on Android. Students will not need to purchase the tablet before the first day of class and will have some time to ask questions before buying a device.
