Visual Arts

Art Community

As a Visual Arts student, you will become part of a vibrant art community. Camosun hosts visiting artist events, offers residencies and independent studies and sets up regular gallery showings of student work.


Three residencies are offered through the Visual Arts program for graduates. The Artist in Residency (AIR) and the Indigineous Artist in Residency program are both social/public art program that brings a professional artist to Camosun College for a 2-3 month residency. There is also the Van den Brink Residency sponsored through the Camosun College Foundation which is awarded to a second year Visual Arts student (or a student who graduated within the past three years) who is strongly self-motivated, shows creativity and who fosters community spirit. The Visual Arts department provides studio space and a faculty advisor through an Independent Study course.

Student work

Throughout the program, Visual Arts students get lots of opportunity to show their work publicly, culminating in a final gallery show at the end of their second year. Check out some of their amazing work.

Visiting Artist series

Camosun hosts visiting artists in a lecture format, allowing students to learn from professional artists and other members of the art community. Free admission, free your mind! Learn more.

Independent Studies

This self-directed program of study is open to graduates of Camosun's Visual Arts program or an equivalent. Students propose projects to undertake using our facilities and (some) equipment. It is not a class that regularly meets; rather, it is a student working independently on a project. Learn more.

Stay connected with social media

social mediaThe Visual Arts department manages several social media platforms for you to engage with. Facebook, Twitter, Visual Arts Blog, and YouTube are places for you to upload art images, seek materials, work through issues with assignments, and be informed about what is happening in the world of art. These platforms are for our students, alumni, faculty and our community.
