Summer Institute for Teens (SIT) is an intensive pre-university program featuring small class sizes. Taught by professional artists and supported by dedicated Teaching Assistants, SIT prepares youths for the next step in their creative career.

This immersive program engages you through intensive studio practice and visual culture. Studio practice is complemented by guest artist talks, in-class discussions, critiques and field trips to engage with the diverse art and design Vancouver community.

The program culminates with a public exhibition and celebration of your work in Emily Carr’s Michael O’Brian Exhibition Commons.

Select your studio from 11 topics. No previous experience in the subject area is required.
