BFA - Indigenous Art (Art Studio)

Bachelor of Fine Arts - Indigenous Art (Art Studio)

Develop your creative and critical thinking skills by combining courses in Art Studio and Indigenous Studies, which also provides context for your individual voice as a contemporary artist.

Studio courses introduce diverse materials and technical skills, as well as traditional and emerging areas, that include:

  • drawing
  • digital fabrication
  • electronic art
  • installation and performance art
  • painting
  • photography
  • printmaking
  • sculpture
  • video and media art

The program provides you with the opportunity to pursue in-depth exploration of indigeneity, land use, and post-colonial theory in contemporary 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.

What Can I Do With My Major?



Know your calendar year

Remember that program requirements vary depending on the calendar year, which is usually the year of admission to uLethbridge. Therefore requirements may differ from year to year, even within the same major.

For questions about this or changing calendar years speak with an advisor.




A minor is a good way to complement your major, have your interests in another subject area recognized on your official transcript, and expand your employment opportunities. It is an optional component of your degree program that requires a smaller number of courses to complete.
