Fine Arts student Kort Woycheshin has been exploring his interests in music, photography, writing and videography as a Multidisciplinary major in the BFA program at ULethbridge. He earned him several significant awards and scholarships with his enthusiasm, and he's built critical skill-sets with work-integrated learning.
Why did you choose to pursue fine arts at ULethbridge?

"In my first year at ULethbridge, I was making a lot of videos and taking photos of everything for fun. Friends tried to convinced me to switch my major from History to New Media, but because I also love music, I thought Multidisciplinary would work best for me. In the end, I pursued Art (Art Studio) as my second stream, and Music (Digital Audio Arts) is third, with New Media as first stream."

Have you earned any Fine Arts awards or scholarships?

"I received the Roloff Beny Foundation Photographic Award, the David Lanier Memorial Award, and the Abbondànza Fine Arts Undergraduate Award. All these awards helped me pursue photography at the highest level without worrying about material or equipment costs."

How have your professors and instructors affected your student life?

"I took courses with Katie Bruce and David Miller, and both professors impacted my life tremendously. Both gave me an excellent amount of confidence in my artistic abilities and have been huge mentors in my academic and professional life. They've continued to support me beyond their classes."
