Administrative Assistant Monika Lederich 905-688-5550, extension 3214 Thistle west 135 https://brocku.ca/finearts/ The Department of Visual Arts, part of the 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 studio and art history courses that 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 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. 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. Students are assisted by artist-teachers who have professional experience and standing in the disciplines they teach. Art history 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 a Minor in Art History and a Concentration in Curatorial Studies, students can explore the cultural, theoretical or practical methods involving the origin, interpretation or exhibition of works of art. Enrolment in most studio courses is limited to 24 students. VISA 4F06 might also be restricted due to space limitations. Facilities Visual Arts facilities include a slide collection and resource centre, art studios, computer labs, video editing room and darkroom. A new studio complex located in East Academic facilitates first, second and third year courses in drawing, painting, sculpture and interdisciplinary studio. Summer Studies in Italy The Department of Visual Arts offers a summer course in Italy in conjunction with the Italian section of the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures. Contact the Department for information and registration.
