Student life

VASA/AEAV (Visual Arts Student Association)

Visit the VASA Facebook group

The Visual Arts Student Association (VASA) is a group of students committed to speaking for the Visual/Fine Art student body each school year. The association acts as a liaison between students, The Faculty of Arts, and the Department of Visual Arts. The group prepares and controls events and fundraisers, and holds weekly office hours within the Visual Art building.

The purpose of VASA is to organize events throughout the year that encourage students  to get involved within the Visual Art program, as well as participate in the arts community in the region. Office hours are held as an outlet for students, under an open door policy. We encourage students to use our service for advice, technical or project assistance, or any type of question or concern. We hope to create an environment that makes students feel comfortable, motivated, and passionate about the Visual Arts program!
