Students must be between the ages of 16 and 18 or have completed Grade 10 as of July 1, 2022 to register.

SIT introduces young creative practitioners to contemporary issues explored through a variety of art, media and design practices. Supported by in-class discussions and artist talks, students consider the intersections of politics, society and culture through the lens of art and design. Our students also employ a set of practical, cross-disciplinary skills as they explore the multitude of ways to work in art and design. Professional Practices is a workshop- and lecture-based course that provides hands-on demonstrations, information and context for young artists, designers and media creatives to begin building their emerging practices.
