Fine Arts at Mount Allison offers a unique approach for students looking to obtain professional training – combining studio work and instruction with the freedom of an immersive liberal and science curriculum.

The program gives you the opportunity to develop your creative and critical ability through studio courses in:  

  • drawing
  • painting
  • photography (analog and digital)
  • printmaking (lithography, silkscreen, intaglio, relief, and letterpress)
  • sculpture and installation
  • open media

In addition to your studio classes, you will take courses and seminars that foster an understanding of art history and visual culture.

The first year studio courses give you a broad knowledge and skill base. Second and third years courses build on this foundation and focus on selected studio areas. In your final year, you create a body of work through independent study.

Some first-year Fine Arts credits are open to students from other degree programs, depending on available space, and with written permission of the department.
