We offer students a choice of 10 studios in a range of disciplines. No previous experience in the subject area is required, so students can choose to explore a new form or further their work in a favourite medium.
Social Practice Wednesdays
This innovative program engages students first hand with diverse socially engaged artists and designers in Vancouver. Looking at artistic practice under the lens of the every day, socially engaged art is crucial to civic change and often includes the general public in the creation of art and design experiences.
Students will see how art and design can be positively centred around community, inclusivity and social change through practices that might include local food systems, music, intergenerational learning, disability/ accessibility and social consciousness.
The mixture of field trips, visiting artists talks and group discussion provides students with a well-rounded base to explore how their own creative practices can be expanded beyond the studio.
