Fine Arts


The School of Fine Arts was established in 1882 as the Canterbury College School of Art.  It is the longest established art school in New Zealand and one of the oldest in the English speaking world.  Throughout its history many of New Zealand’s leading artists have either taught at the school or have been pupils. Research revolves around basic teaching disciplines such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, design, and film (especially short films and documentaries).
