A Visual Art Partnership with the Vancouver Art Gallery

Mondays, 4:30-7:30 pm

This exciting full-scholarship visual arts program for students ages 13-15 is a collaboration between Arts Umbrella and the Vancouver Art Gallery. Students will explore, critique, and observe exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Then students will respond to the exhibition by making their work at Arts Umbrella.

Please note: this program takes place at the Vancouver Art Gallery and Arts Umbrella Granville Island.

Submission Deadline: Friday, September 30 at 11:59PM

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.
