DescriptionThe Department of Fine Arts is one of the smallest departments at Algoma U. Our relatively small size provides the ideal learning environment for our budding artists, who will undergo a process of dramatic personal growth throughout the course of their four years. Students will graduate from our four-year program with a greater sense of achievement and pride in their work.

Our program is ideal for artists who have a passion for contemporary studio practices in painting, drawing, printmaking, and mixed media. Core studio courses are supported by academic studies in art history and theory. Courses also explore site specific sculpture, installation and land art, digital social media, bookbinding, and aboriginal art. In the first two years of studies, students will receive the benefit of structured, intense, project-based studio courses that develop basic visual vocabulary, observational drawing skills, and an overview of art history. Upper year courses involve increasingly varied approaches that allow for more independent and personal development.
