Artists interested in UBC Okanagan’s visual arts program are invited to attend a series of Creative Day workshops on campus.
Creative Day workshops are fun, hands-on events organized by the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies. Creative Days are an opportunity for prospective applicants to the Visual Arts Bachelor of Fine Arts Program or anyone interested in pursuing visual arts courses at UBC’s Okanagan to find out more about the program and facilities in the program.
The workshops will allow participants to learn new skills and to see what a university-level course is like. Participants will work with university faculty and staff, and have the chance to meet and talk with current students about program choices.
