Art Foundation professors are accomplished artists, designers, entrepreneurs and art historians. They represent the full spectrum of creative career paths available to students upon graduation. Program co-ordinator Cole Swanson is an interdisciplinary artist who has been featured in gallery exhibitions, residencies, and festivals on four continents. Professors include Noni Kaur, Marc Colangelo, Golboo Amani, Steven Cober, Eva Kolcze, Neil Harrison, John Stuart, Carolyne Topdjian, and Tobias Williams.
The newly constructed Humber Art Commons was designed to foster creative collaboration and experimentation. The flexible space allows Art Foundation students to conceptualize, create, and exhibit work all in the same place.
Launched as a live lab, the Art Commons building provides students with a creative space to explore and discover new techniques. Located at Lakeshore Campus on Lakeshore Blvd, the building acts as a hub for art students. The open concept allows for a modern studio space flooded by natural light. The space has been modelled on the general concept of transformability. Four large multi-purpose rooms on two floors can be turned into any kind of collaborative space depending on need.
