Administrative Assistant Monika Lederich 905-688-5550, extension 3214 573 Glenridge 121 brocku.ca/visualarts The Department of Visual Arts, part of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, is concerned with the nature, function and history of visual arts, from the classics to popular culture, from ancient drawings and rituals to the avant-garde. Through critical analysis of classic works and personal creative development, the student will gain an awareness of the ways in which artistic media function. Our aim is to contribute to the vitality of the arts by developing sensitive, creative and articulate artists, teachers, audiences and graduates who are disciplined and adaptable, with both research skills and experience in studio practice. The Visual Arts program consists of courses in studio and in the history of art and visual culture. In both cases, our courses provide a practical and critical understanding of the visual arts emphasizing personal development. To this end students are introduced to a range of historical, theoretical and critical approaches to art-making and to the investigation of cultural documents. Students are encouraged to extend their experience through exposure to events sponsored by the Department of Visual Arts and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. Students are also offered opportunities to visit galleries and exhibitions through field trips organized by the Department of Visual Arts or in the context of specific course curriculum. Students may take their degree in either History of Art and Visual Culture or Studio Art. Studio activities that include intuitive, analytical and conceptual approaches are designed with the aspirations of the student artist in mind. Options are encouraged in the studio with introductory or advanced courses in drawing, painting and interdisciplinary workshops; additional courses in sculpture, photography or computer imaging broaden the experience and introduce the photographic, video or electronic medium to students. Student learning is facilitated by artist-teachers who have professional experience and standing in the disciplines they teach. History of Art and Visual Culture courses examine the development of artistic styles as well as the critical and aesthetic issues that these styles bring into play. Major artists and movements are related to their cultural contexts and artistic traditions with the goal of developing critical as well as aesthetic acumen. With the choice of a Major or Minor in the History of Art and Visual Culture as well as a Concentration in Curatorial Studies, students can explore the cultural, theoretical or practical methods involving the interpretation or exhibition of works of art. The BSc (Honours) in Computer Science and Visual Arts program is tailored to students who may be interested in career paths in software development and digital media. The degree gives a solid foundation in computer technology and software science, as well as essential foundations in visual arts, emphasizing digital media. Enrolment in most studio courses is limited to between 18 and 22 students. VISA 4F06 is restricted to 8 students due to space limitations.
