|Centennial College's Fine Arts Studio program is an intensive two-year offering that emphasizes physically creating art through drawing, painting and sculpting. By (literally) getting your hands dirty, you'll learn the latest skills and techniques, find your creative voice and be prepared to launch your career as an artist. You'll spend more time in the studio in two years at Centennial than other schools offer in four! In addition to covering the creative process, this arts diploma program features one of Ontario's most comprehensive professional practice curriculums. You'll graduate well-prepared to thrive as a self-employed artist in the professional arts community.
The Fine Arts Studio program is for you if you're serious about practicing as a professional. As a candidate, you should have meaningful prior experience through education, a lifetime personal commitment, and/or the professional equivalent.

Guidelines for creating your portfolio:

Should display the range of your recent experience in media and imagery that are meaningful to YOU.
Aim for between 10 and 15 images (sketchbooks can be extra).
Media may include: drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, documented installation artwork, digitally processed work. Creative writing, poetry, theatrical, dance or musical performance, etc. can also be included.
Sketchbooks are particularly informative.
Images created on your own carry more weight than the school assignments.
