A wider lens for our visual arts students
At Collingwood School, we believe the passions of our students will help build a better world. That’s why we emphasizes authentic, real-world educational experiences and a personalized approach to learning for all students.
An exciting example of our educational philosophy is the new, unique partnership we have established with Vancouver Film School. Visual arts students at Collingwood’s Senior School now have the opportunity to access the facilities, tools and resources at various VFS campuses.
Our Digital Studio 10 class, for example, recently visited VFS for a campus tour and the opportunity to participate in a professional photography session. Digital Studio 10 is a comprehensive exploration of digital media and its artistic applications. Students explore digital tools and techniques across various forms of media, including photography, design, illustration, video and basic animation. The opportunity to not only observe VFS students working on their own projects but also use VFS studios, equipment and sound stages is truly a unique and profound learning opportunity for these students.
“Something that I learned on my first trip to VFS that I would like to share with my peers,” said one DS 10 student, “is how the process of taking photos and filmmaking is so incredibly cool! It was really interesting to look around VFS and see all the different sets and work rooms and see how far one can go with photography and film.”
We believe this partnership provides our visual arts classes with unique, real-world exposures and experiences that are not typically available to students until their post-secondary studies.
