Studio and Performing Arts
In the Studio and Performing Arts courses at Canterbury, you'll embark on a journey towards esthetic literacy and a deeper appreciation of the arts. Whether it's through music, theater, or studio art, you'll engage in self-exploration as you create your own "art." The focus here is on grasping aesthetic principles and understanding the arts within both historical and cultural contexts.
Much like your other academic courses, you can expect a similar workload in Studio and Performing Arts. Your education extends beyond the classroom; you'll have the opportunity to visit museums and galleries, participate in instrumental performances, engage in recording sessions, and attend on-campus workshops. Fees for these enriching experiences vary based on the destination. If you're particularly committed to Studio Arts, the department provides portfolio guidance, a diverse curriculum, a wide range of media exposure, and opportunities for independent study.
