Canada Star Secondary School Art Academy offers a $5000 scholarship for talented artists.
CSSS Art Academy is a broad-based comprehensive arts program open to students in Grades 10-12 who have a strong interest in visual arts and design. Students who wish to push themselves in the visual arts further than they would in a regular art class, or those who just enjoy creating various types of project, will benefit from this vibrant, enriched program. Students spend 2-4 hours per day in the studio, allowing them to pursue more advanced art techniques and uninterrupted creative time, including working with life models. Original work may be used to build a strong personal portfolio for post-secondary education opportunities and employment following graduation. Students will have the opportunity to develop connections through community galleries, studios and businesses.
