At the gallery, students will gain behind-the-scenes access with workshops and special tours of a number of exhibitions and will have the opportunity to speak with and learn from exhibiting artists and art world professionals. They will then respond to this experience at Arts Umbrella’s Art & Design studios through mentored and self-directed projects that consider the materials, themes, and processes on display. They will also have the chance to curate, install, and critique their work multiple times a year.
Students in the program will produce an inspiring breadth of personal, experimental, and challenging artwork in response to multiple different exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery. They will be expected to speak and present their work through group critique and solo presentation in both studio and gallery settings.
