  • intensive studio training is complemented by lecture and seminar courses in Art History
  • small class sizes and high professor-to-student ratios create an interactive learning environment
  • students are encouraged to push technical and creative boundaries in a wide variety of media, in spacious and well-equipped studios

With its tradition of scholarship and research, and an environment that both stimulates and challenges, Queen’s provides the ideal setting for the study and creation of Fine Art (Visual Art). Our program combines the technical, theoretical and critical studies required in the practice of visual art in four interrelated areas: painting, printmaking, sculpture and new media.

These media are seen as broad, overlapping areas of experience, each containing many approaches and procedures.

Studio training is complemented by studies in Art History and elective courses.

It is possible to complete a Minor in another subject, as part of the BFA (Honours) Degree.
