The Pre-College Program is a visual arts and design immersion for serious art students between 16-18 years who have completed grade 11 or 12.
If you are a talented high school student who is serious about pursuing post-secondary studies in visual art or design, the Pre-College Program is your opportunity to become immersed in intensive art and design experiences at the college level that will focus your learning on the materials, skills and knowledge that are relevant to artists and designers today. It is a genuine opportunity for you to work like a professional artist/designer and to be mentored by professional artists and designers.
Social and educational events and trips during the Pre-College Program will open exciting opportunities for you to interact with your surroundings as an artist/designer and to get to know everyone in the Program.
