The Drawing and Painting department within the School of Creative Arts at the University of Windsor is an extensive, formal, heuristic curriculum that offers an extraordinary opportunity in rigorous hand skill training to support its creative research and production.
The program offers three spacious painting and drawing ateliers and one project room for precision clean work. Senior students will be allotted a semi private studio for completion of their final graduating exhibition.
The program’s facilities include a Student Gallery which is run and organized by students. This enables students to collaborate and view their work, outside of and beyond the conventional studio experience, in an independent context. Exhibitions are generally available to students who have attended at the School for more than one year.
Off-site trips for data collection and visiting artists in studio play an integral role in the success of the program’s students. Producing work on-site develops visual literacy and critical acumen. The direct exposure to the wider art and cultural community is a preamble to a lifetime’s engagement in the disciplines of Drawing and Painting.
