The Department of Art is committed to the study and practice of the visual arts as these relate to creative art making, educational practice and theory, and the understanding of art in its diverse historical and cultural settings. The University of Calgary produces graduates well equipped to meet the numerous overlapping skills currently demanded within professional art practice and theoretical discourse.
As a student in the Department of Art, you work with award-winning professors, internationally renowned artists, and technical staff. You will work in large, bright classrooms and studios, handle up-to-date equipment and deal with leading-edge processes. You will also have an opportunity to work with silver/chemical photography, stone lithography, plaster and bronze casting -we have the newest, but we haven't lost touch with the long-established.
