St. Elizabeth is proud and excited to introduce a brand new stream in the Regional Arts Program. Deemed as a first of its kind in our school board, St. Elizabeth will be offering a Digital Media Arts discipline that focuses on all aspects of digital art (non-traditional practices), illustration, character design (for video game applications) and animation (both classical and digital).
The Digital Media Arts stream combines foundation studies in drawing and computer-based technology offering students high-demand skills in our ever-evolving digital landscape. The curriculum is designed to maximize student potential and develop their creative spirit through a variety of expanded opportunities. Students will use their art and technology skills for outreach projects that are developed with partners in our community as well.
Aside from nurturing creative potential, the program also aim to prepare students for post-secondary and workplace pathways. With an emphasis on portfolio development, every student will be given an opportunity to exhibit (through year-end and off-site shows), curate and prepare their own body of work for assessment within their chosen pathways.
Our open house will be on Wednesday, Oct. 11th. This application is offered to all students entering grade 9 in 2017. Entrance into the program is normally obtained at the Grade 9 level; however, each year a limited number of spaces may be available in Grades 10, 11 & 12 for exceptionally talented students. St. Elizabeth Catholic High School will process and offer audition dates to all candidates who complete an application package on or before Friday, December 1, 2017. Audition details will be mailed to each applicant.
