Develop your artistic talent

Develop your expressive and analytical abilities as you prepare for a career as a professional artist, designer, curator, or educator. 

Studying the creative arts gives rise not only to innovative thinking, but also to cultural and economic benefits. Thoughtful visual expression enriches our shared experience — revealing beauty, encouraging tolerance and diversity, and sharpening critical insight.

Hone your craft with support from a faculty of high-quality artists, academics, and designers. Faculty members collaborate to create a dynamic learning environment, optimal for your studies. You can choose from a variety of Fine Arts disciplines in which to grow your skills, including traditional Studio Arts, New Media art, Graphic and Digital Design, Film Studies, and Art History & Visual Studies.

As you work within a rich community of domestic and international students, you have the opportunity to develop connections to local and global creative cultures.


UFV Visual Arts exposed me to many new experiences and ideas — challenging me to push outside my comfort zone. I expanded my skill set and gained the tools to succeed in post-grad opportunities.
