Drawing and Painting Certificate


Students in the Visual Arts at Thompson Rivers University who prefer to work in 2D media can opt for a Painting and Drawing Certificate. The courses can be counted toward a Visual Arts Diploma and toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Arts with a Minor in Visual Arts, or other university degrees at the same time. The Certificate allows students to sample a diverse selection of core 2D media: painting, oil and acrylic; and drawing, which would also include practices such as life drawing, collage and assemblage to allow a solid grounding in contemporary 2D art practices. The Certificate is useful in a resume for job applications or entrance to academic programs that require a background in contemporary painting and drawing practices, or to move towards a career as a practicing artist.
