Bachelor of Fine Arts - Art (Art Studio)
You have the opportunity to create, while developing technical expertise in various mediums. Explore a range of emerging and traditional art studio areas, which include drawing, digital fabrication, electronic art, installation and performance art, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video and media art. This conceptually oriented contemporary art program allows you to draw from all your areas of study to create art.
As a senior student, develop your own artistic direction with support from an Art Studio professor of your choice, who works one-on-one with you. In addition, you have your own studio space, where you have the freedom to experiment.
Art History/Museum Studies courses help hone your critical thinking and writing skills, and provide a context for your emerging voice as an artist.

“I chose the U of L because it has a good conceptual art based program, ample studio space, small class sizes and well equipped studios. It has supportive professors and many awesome student-run initiatives including the Student Art Society, Mutt Magazine, and Niche Gallery. All of which provide opportunities for young artists to take another step towards self-motivated professional practices.”
