ULethbridge offers two streams for students interested in Indigenous Art: Indigenous Art Studio or Indigenous Art History/Museum Studies.
The Indigenous Art (Art Studio) program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to pursue in-depth exploration of indigeneity, land use and post-colonial theory in contemporary art. Develop your voice as an independent artist or arts professional through an intensive studio experience exploring technical, aesthetic and theoretical studies necessary to pursue contemporary art.
Receive instruction in a range of methods and materials in drawing, painting, photography, installation art, performance art, spatial practices, printmaking, media, and electronic art. Senior students pursue self-directed studio work in a capstone course supported by faculty members of their choice.
