Visual Arts Studio Work Study programs provide practical real-world experiences in a structured learning environment, which are designed to expand and enhance participants’ technical skills and to increase knowledge and creativity in the areas of printmaking, papermaking, ceramics, sculpture, and photography. Programs offer a dynamic combination of learning opportunities which include attending workshops, demonstrations, and presentations; contact with professional staff, visiting artists, and faculty; and collaboration with facilitators in Visual Arts and other Banff Centre arts programs.
Work Study placements are appropriate for recent graduates of studio-based programs and individuals wishing to leave their current work worlds or formal advanced studies for a period of time in order to gain professional experience and expand and develop their careers and capabilities. These programs require full-time commitment and independent thinking.
Eligibility: Candidates for the Studio Work Study program must possess a solid foundation in at least one of the studio areas offered by the Visual Arts department (printmaking, papermaking, ceramics, sculpture, and photography), as well as an enthusiasm for learning.
