Why study Studio Art at UTSC?

The Studio Art program at UTSC will help you to develop essential creative and technical skills to pursue your artistic interests while putting you on a career path for a range of creative fields in arts and media. Our program offers hands-on courses in drawing, painting, photography, animation, video and sound art, sculpture, performance, and new media. You can experiment with a large inventory of equipment in our Fabrication and Media Labs with the support from experienced technical staff. Studio offers a Specialist, Major, and Minor, allowing you to combine programs in ACM and at UTSC.

Studio Art students have many opportunities to exhibit their artworks: in the Annual ACM Studio Art Student Exhibition, at the student-run Gallery 1265, in the campus-wide ARTSIDEOUT arts festival, or the tri-campus University of Toronto Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition.

Studio Art at UTSC combines the world-class academic resources of the University of Toronto with a close-knit and vibrant arts community where you will receive special attention and mentorship from a diverse faculty of award-winning, internationally-renowned practicing artists.

Our graduates pursue careers as media and tech designers, creative entrepreneurs, teachers, media consultants, arts festival organizers, curators, and practicing artists.

For more information on the program of study, including program requirements and course descriptions, please see the Registrar’s Calendar.
