“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

As you pursue your creative goals, we offer ongoing opportunities to work closely with internationally active artists and scholars in an intimate setting.

In a unique natural and architectural setting, you join a community of artists and scholars. You work in spacious, well-equipped facilities and undertake projects with expert technical support, creative guidance, and critical discussion. Our smaller class sizes enable you to engage directly with instructors who are invested in your progress.

You gain valuable professional experience through exhibition, curatorial and study opportunities in the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Penny Art Gallery, and other community cultural forums.

Courses in Art Studio, and Art History and Museum Studies provide breadth and depth to your understanding of art and visual culture in the context of a Liberal Education University. Through our renowned Art Now and Architecture & Design Now visiting speaker series, you encounter numerous national and international artists, architects, curators and designers, with opportunities to interact with them directly through studio visits and workshops.
