Life in the studio is dynamic! The enriched and accelerated program provides students with a range of experiences to develop individual creativity. Technical skill and conceptual growth are the foundations for each level of study. Exciting projects incorporating traditional and experimental approaches are explored in the areas of fine arts and  design.
Extensive theoretical studies, appreciation  and criticism unlock the mysteries of art history and the creative process.
As students progress through the curriculum to the senior grades, they are each provided with a unique course of study designed to address individual post secondary goals. Portfolio preparation for college, university and art based alternatives
is provided for all senior students.
