From the history of art, spanning centuries of artistic achievement, to contemporary self-expression in the studio, StFX offers you an exciting learning environment led by art historians and professional artists who help you understand and master creative techniques. Each year, hundreds of students take Art courses at StFX, developing a heightened appreciation of art and culture.
