About the Program
August 9-27, 2021
Contemporary Art Practices is a three-week visual art intensive designed for artists ages 15–19 who are interested in advancing their artistic skills and creative thinking.
The intensive is a stimulating and challenging experience for young artists committed to experimentation and dedicated to pushing the boundaries of their own art-making. In a supportive studio environment, students will work with professional Vancouver artists, curators, and educators, exploring a range of contemporary art practices.
The program will introduce participants to creative new approaches in art-making through a series of workshops at Arts Umbrella and exhibition-making with the Contemporary Art Gallery. Students will engage in critiques and discussions about how to develop their ideas and work with new materials.
The program will culminate in an exhibition of student work at the Contemporary Art Gallery.
