Art Education at UVic brings together students from across the university to engage with inquiry, artistic processes and dialogue as students explore the multiple roles of art and art-making in schools, community and our daily life.​

Art Education at UVic is premised on the belief that art making is a way of learning:

  • about ourselves, others and our place in the world
  • that supports interdisciplinarity and diverse perspectives
  • that involves critical thinking, reflection and inquiry
  • through working with materials, problem-solving, and critical and creative thinking
  • within a community of art-makers
