“U Lethbridge has a good conceptual art based program, ample studio space, small class sizes and well equipped studios. It has supportive professors and many awesome student-run initiatives including the Student Art Society, Mutt Magazine, and Niche Gallery. All of which provide opportunities for young artists to take another step towards self-motivated professional practices.”
William Austin, 4th year BFA – Art major
