The Fine Arts Diploma Program at Langara College is an intense study of visual arts and design, providing students with a wide set of studio skills, as well as the opportunity to specialize in one or more of the studio disciplines.
The program is committed to promoting self-awareness and personal growth in art and design. Faculty include practicing artists and designers who are experts in their areas as well as dedicated educators.
The full-time program involves approximately 20-24 hours of studio classes each week, as well as course work in English and Art History. Students should expect to commit the same amount of time each week to research, project completion and course reading requirements. The program may also be completed through part-time study.
The studio component is offered during the Fall and Spring Semesters and select Fine Arts Studio, Art History and English courses are now available in the summer semester.
