Resources for Current Students
Class Limits: First-year classes in Art and Art History are in high demand. If you are not able to get into a class because it is full, keep in mind that registration fluctuates and to keep checking back to see if a space has opened up. Because of the space restrictions in the studio areas, in many cases we are unable to go over that class limit to accommodate more students.
Other reasons you may need permission to take a class are to override a registration restriction, a time conflict, or a prerequisite waiver, etc.
The forms can be found here: https://students.usask.ca/academics/registration/permission.php
Lockers in the Department of Art and Art History are available on a first-come-first-serve basis for students registered in Art and Art History classes.
There is no locker fee, and students provide their own lock. There is a limit of one locker per person. They are located near the painting studio (Murray 290), and the drawing studio (Murray 190).
Lockers used during the regular term must be vacated by April 30. Spring and Summer sessions the lockers must be vacated by August 15.
For lockers in the printmaking area, please contact Patrick Bulas: firstname.lastname@example.org
To reserve your locker during the Spring and Summer session, please see the Office Coordinator for Art and Art History in Room 80, Murray Building.

Aboriginal Art in the Library - http://library.usask.ca/aboriginal-art/artists.php

The University of Saskatchewan Permanent Art Collection & College Art Galleries are located on the first and ground floor of the College Building
The St. Thomas More Art Gallery is located on the second floor of the college, just outside the library.
The Art Department has locations in two buildings on campus: the Murray Building and the Research Annex building. The Murray Building is also where the main Murray Library is located, however the Art Department is separate and the department cannot be accessed through the library.
The Murray Building houses the printmaking facilities on the ground level in room 64. The Drawing and Photography studios are on the first level, Rooms 190 and 182, accessed through the entrance facing Place Riel and the bus mall. Going up one more floor you'll find the Painting studios in 291, accessed either by that front entrance staircase or the staircase near the Snelgrove Gallery and Sask Archives. Art History classes are mostly taught in either 292.2, past the student lounge, or in 299 - a large lecture theatre.
The Sculpture facilities are housed in the Research Annex building located at 105 Maintenance Rd.
For the regular session, Term 1 and Term 2, students have one month after exams end to claim their work. For Spring / Summer terms, they have until a week after the final day of exams.
Term 1 / Term 2 - collect work by the last day of May
Spring / Summer Term - collect work by the third week of August
Unclaimed artwork will become property of the Department of Art and Art History and will be disposed of at its discretion. The College will assume no liability for the loss, theft, or damage of any student work at any time.
If there are circumstances which prevent you from claiming your artwork within these time frames, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make alternate arrangements.
