Art Now Online
"The Department of Art at the University of Lethbridge is pleased to announce an important distance learning initiative...ART Now is a course that centers on presentations by artists, curators, critics, filmmakers and art historians from across the country and beyond. Each week for the duration of the semester, up to three different speakers (approximately 30 per term) deliver an individualized and unique lecture based on their research practice and creative interests. Presentations are videotaped for the online section of the course, so that registered students may view the lectures according to their personal schedule. Although it is an integral part of our degree programme, it is very popular with the wider public, and may be of interest especially to art lovers wanting to keep in touch with the latest in the visual arts; with those considering a return to university; or with those who want to engage in university-level discussion about the arts but need a flexible schedule.
