Part of our DVSA Advanced Studio, Foundation Studies in Visual Art is a 1-year introductory program divided into four stages, beginning with intensive perceptual, formal, experimental and theoretical study, and ending with work on an independent project in a major and minor discipline.
This program is ideal for:
- high school graduates looking to gain a solid theoretical understanding of art and design and build their portfolio in order to apply to a college/university program
- mature students seeking an immersive environment in which to develop a comprehensive and holistic understanding of the visual art process, theory and practice
You will have an opportunity to explore a wide range of materials and mediums within a multidisciplinary environment. Disciplines include painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, video, sculpture, installation and performance. Throughout the year, there are scheduled field trips, visiting artist lectures and workshops.
