Contemporary Art Practices
Visual Arts Summer Intensive
August 10 – 28, 2020
Developed in partnership with Arts Umbrella and begun in 2015, the Contemporary Art Practices: Visual Arts Summer Intensive is an annual, three‐week program 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, delivered online via Zoom, 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 virtual workshops 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.
