We offer students a choice of 10 studios in a range of disciplines. No previous experience in the subject area is required, so students can choose to explore a new form or further their work in a favourite medium.
Professional Practice and Visual Culture
Students from all 10 studios spend one day per week in these two courses, where they learn how to build an active art practice and how to discuss and present art in a cultural context.
This workshop-based course provides students with a set of practical, relevant, cross-disciplinary skills, including how to write about creative practices, how to create a strong admissions portfolio and how to promote and share their work.
Students are introduced to historical and contemporary issues in art, media and design practice. Offsite visits to galleries and public art sites as well as in-class discussion will help students to develop critical and conceptual skills essential to the analysis and communication of ideas.
The final exhibition brings together the work of all studios into the Concourse Gallery at Emily Carr University on Granville Island. Students are also able to participate in the exhibition planning committee, learning curatorial and project planning skills.
