With its unique interdisciplinary approach that bridges studio production, art history, and curatorial practice, AMPD's Department of Visual Art & Art History offers students the opportunity to become well-rounded professionals in the field, able to lead in the creation, exhibition, critical understanding, and communication of visual culture in diverse environments.
Through intensive studio training supported by studies in the history and theory of art, students receive a thorough grounding in the production of artworks and comparative cultural analysis across a wide range of traditional and contemporary media. In the initial foundation year, students take courses in all artistic media -- painting, sculpture, print media, drawing, photography, and interdisciplinary art -- and then can choose to specialize in one or more areas. At all levels, students are mentored by faculty members who are highly regarded artists with active professional practices.
York's Visual Arts students are supported in their exploration and creation with access to facilities unrivaled in Canada, including the Joan Goldfarb Visual Arts Study Centre; the L. L. Odette Centre for Sculpture; spacious, state of the art studios; five student-run exhibition galleries and the award-winning Art Gallery of York University.
