Fine Arts Studio

Centennial College’s Fine Arts Studio program is an intensive two-year offering with emphasis on physically creating art through drawing, painting and sculpting.

By getting your hands dirty (literally), you learn the latest skills and techniques, find your own creative voice and be prepared to launch your career as an artist. You spend more time in the studio in two years at Centennial College than other schools offer in four!

In addition to the creative process, this arts diploma program offers 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.
