Welcome to Material, home of the wiki for the Faculty of Visual Art + Material Practice, Emily Carr Universit of Art + Design, Vancouver, Canada.
The Faculty of Visual Art and Material Practice offers a studio-based education that reflects the diversity and complexity of contemporary art practices. Students work in a stimulating, supportive studio environment engaging with diverse ideas and materials to imagine and create new images and objects. With a strong emphasis on conceptual, technical and historical knowledge based on material art practices, our teaching faculty are practicing artists dedicated to providing students with a positive, productive, learning community. We pride ourselves in knowing that we are graduating artists who research, produce, and present their artwork within a broad global cultural economy.
