Images and Ideas, various media by Art Enhancement students
Images and Ideas is an annual exhibition of artwork created by the Art Enhancement class at Place des Arts.

Images and Ideas gives these exceptional students a chance to display their newly developed skills and concepts, and learn the ins and outs of developing and participating in a professional exhibition.

APEx Annual Alumni Exhibition, various media by Place des Arts alumni
For many students, APEx is an introduction to exhibiting their artwork and provides new students with the knowledge and confidence they need to improve their practice and explore new concepts and techniques. This is an exhibition for witnessing artistic growth and supporting the work of developing students in our community.
The APEx Alumni Exhibition is a homecoming exhibition for talented former students of Place des Arts. Over decades of teaching, supporting, mentoring and interacting with thousands of developing visual artists, musicians, dancers, writers and theatre artists, Place des Arts is pleased to have made an impact in the growth of the exceptional artists profiled in this exhibition who have pushed their personal practices to new heights.
The alumni exhibition is Place des Arts’ chance to invite our prodigal students back to share with the current student base their progress, their successes and their stories. With such a diverse array of talent on display, the alumni exhibition demonstrates what one can accomplish through hard work and creativity, and inspires a new generation of artists in our community.
