Enrich Your Education

Our Department of Visual Arts has regular work study opportunities that involve art demos, campus/facility tours, teaching, and studio maintenance. This is a great way to bolster your resume, supplement your academic background with related experience, and make some income.

Each year we take a departmental field trip to visit museums and/or art galleries as a way to enhance the structure of our programs and bond as a group. In the past, we have gone to art and cultural centres in Toronto, Chicago, Montreal, Ottawa, Minneapolis, and New York to view some of the best artworks in the world. 

The Visual Arts Network (VAN) is an independent, student-run club dedicated to increasing awareness of art within the university, and fostering a positive social environment within the Department. VAN organizes fundraisers, events, and student exhibitions throughout the year. We encourage you to get involved in VAN and play a part in the great arts community at Lakehead University!
