Our facilities are outstanding, including large sky-lit painting studios, video editing suites and a computer lab, photography, drawing, printmaking studios, and the Odette Sculpture Centre – one of the best facilities of its kind in North America. Most recently, a study center has been added, which houses a large collection of original contemporary Canadian Art. Students also benefit from the opportunity to exhibit their work in any of the eight student-run galleries on campus. In addition, students can see some of the world’s finest contemporary works at the nationally renowned Art Gallery of York University.
