As a student registered with any of the three major areas of study in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at Nipissing University (AHVS, Studio, and Film), you will have access to unique research and exhibition opportunities that foster professional development through exciting and interactive collaborative ventures with senior artists, gallery owners and community leaders.
Small class sizes with a friendly collegiate spirit, award-winning instructors who share extensive and interdisciplinary connections in the field, ample studio space, and a breathtaking natural environment in which to work are significant strengths of our program.
The mission is to help art history and fine arts students and students from other disciplines develop critical and interdisciplinary frameworks to question how the fields of art and visual and material culture relate to disparate social contexts that shape our lives.
How do the arts of the past help us understand our future?
How are contemporary artists shaped by the cultural treasures inherited from the past?
Why are visual art and material culture central to social development and personal advancement issues in many different cultures around the world?
How can we prepare for the experience of interacting with another culture through travel and tourism?
These and other questions form the basis of the ongoing discovery of the often-unexpected diversity of human voices in art history and visual studies.
In this program, we encourage independent inquiry and discovery among students and actively support diversity, uniqueness of voice, and pursuit of intellectual and aesthetic excellence.
The goal is to prepare, encourage and inspire critically engaged and visually literate visual artists who will contribute to the field and beyond and act as culturally active and socially responsible citizens.
Studies in new media, innovative visual strategies of performance, video art, and site-specific installations complement our existing strengths in sculpture, painting, drawing, and printmaking, in which students develop vital foundational skills.
A film can absorb our attention vividly and emotionally.
Through courses in film studies, You examine an art form that has evolved tools and techniques that have attained the artfulness and social impact of any other form of art.
You will explore the critical linkage between aesthetics and content, teasing out the issues of realism, presentation vs representation, and the explicit and implicit matters of ideology, historicity, ethnicity, and gender.
The goal is to help students acquire a range of tools to help them think about the impact of films on their own lives and the lives of others.
