Reading List

In collaboration with Ron Burnett Library + Learning Commons, we have developed a repository for digital and print resources for emerging artists and designers. The list is maintained in a way that allows content to evolve and stay current for the Emily Carr Community and the public.


Here you can find online resources, books and print materials that offer toolkits, templates, context and advice to maintain or grow your practice.
