Design and Visual Arts

Whether you are a beginner or practicing artist, this program will help you prepare a varied portfolio of work to be used for entry into the art/design industry or for entry into advanced design or fine art diploma/degree programs.

In the first year of the program, you will experiment with a diverse cross-section of style and media, including drawing, two- and three-dimensional design, illustration, graphic design, web design, digital photography, and multimedia. This hands-on intensive year allows you to explore a wide range of media, subject, and style to strengthen your creative and artistic talents.

In the second year, you will select a specialization in drawing/illustration/painting, painting/mixed (2D and/or 3D), printmaking/mixed media, or digital photography/multimedia. You will be guided and mentored throughout these studio courses by practicing artists, gearing your personal project-based work towards an end-of-year exhibition.
