Program Information

School:Sheridan College - Trafalgar Campus
Faculty:Faculty of Animation, Arts and Design
Field of Study:Visual and Performing Arts, General
Description:You'll make art from day one, taking visual arts courses during Year 1 in drawing, painting, sculpture and other disciplines. From there you'll build progressively toward mastery of an individual visual arts skill-set. Students can earn a college certificate after one year, a diploma after two years, or an advanced diploma by remaining in the program for a third year. Visual and Creative Arts graduates can continue their studies at other visual arts institutions. Sheridan has transfer agreements in place with the Ontario College of Art and Design (BFA), Brock University (BFA), Griffith University (in Brisbane, Australia) (MAVA), and other institutions.

Sheridan offers a visual arts program like no other. We combine rigorous studio-based visual arts training with business and marketing coursework to produce a unique education in "entrepreneurial art." You'll develop more than a portfolio; you'll also develop the professionalism necessary for a successful career in the vibrant visual arts and culture sector. During the second year (and third year, if applicable), you'll learn to integrate your studio skills with art-related careers. Visual arts and culture sector professionals are often self-employed, and this program will help prepare graduates to open their own studios or businesses.
