The Student Exhibition is an annual showcase of artwork created by Place des Arts visual arts students of all ages during the 2018/2019 season. The exhibition features artwork from the diverse range of classes offered at Place des Arts including painting, ceramics, drawing, cartooning and fibre arts.
For many students, this show is an introduction to exhibiting and provides them with the knowledge and confidence to further develop their current practice and explore new concepts and techniques. This exhibition witnesses artistic growth and supports the work of students in our arts community.
Images and Ideas is an annual exhibition of artwork created by students registered in our Art Enhancement class. Taught by Don Portelance, Art Enhancement provides an opportunity for advanced students to continue improving their abilities and challenging themselves artistically. This class combines studio sessions with field trips and focuses on mediums, style and ideas to provide an enriched program for students serious about improving their artistic abilities. Images and Ideas gives these students the opportunity to display their work and learn the process of developing and participating in a group exhibition.
The Alumni Exhibition is a homecoming exhibition for former students and previous faculty and staff of Place des Arts. Through decades of teaching, supporting, mentoring and interacting with thousands of developing artists, musicians, dancers, writers, film makers and animators, Place des Arts is pleased to have made an impact in the growth of exceptional artists who have pushed their personal practice to new heights.
The Alumni Exhibition is an opportunity for Place des Arts alumni to share their progress, their successes and their stories with our current student base. With such a diverse array of talent on display, the Alumni Exhibition demonstrates what one can accomplish through hard work and creativity. We hope this exhibition inspires a new generation of artists in celebrating Place des Arts’ vibrant and creative community beyond these walls.
