Summer Institute for Teens

The Summer Institute for Teens (SIT) is an intensive pre-university program featuring small classes taught by professional, practicing artists to prepare students for the next step in their creative career.

This immersive, one-month experience engages students through intensive studio practice and visual culture.

Studio practice is complemented by discussion, in-class critique and field trips to engage with the diverse art and design community of Vancouver. The program culminates with a public exhibition in Emily Carr’s Michael O’Brian Exhibition Commons, which features work from all of our summer students.
