The Fine Arts program will prepare you to become an artist, work in the field of fine arts, and become a community leader in the promotion of visual arts and culture. Through the problem-solving involved in preparing studio projects, the management skills involved in the preparation of a graduate show, and the analysis of contemporary culture that is developed through research, this program offers the essential mix between studio and academic training that provides the tools and the certification to pursue a career in fine arts. You will study in a collaborative studio environment within the natural setting of North Bay and will learn from professors who are practicing artists as well as educators.
At Nipissing, we aim to provide comprehensive and in-depth studio experiences that will challenge, inspire, and prepare you for a future in the arts.
In our studio courses, you will receive strong technical instruction combined with opportunities for creative exploration and experimentation. We have a diverse faculty with exceptional expertise in drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. In these areas you will learn both traditional and contemporary methods, along with concepts and theories related to each area of study.
Our art history and theory courses will provide you with a well-rounded, critical knowledge base that will help to provide context and greater understanding of art and its many forms. These courses also provide meaningful opportunities for research and inquiry connected to your own interests and developing art practice.
Prerequisites have been removed from the following three studio courses to enable first year Fine Arts students to register for one of them in addition to the required FAVA 1026 Art Fundamentals I. Elective students are also welcome to register for these courses.
