REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
The Summer Institute for Teens (SIT) is an intensive pre-university program featuring small classes taught by professional, practicing artists to prepare students for the next step in their creative career.
This immersive, one-month experience engages students through intensive studio practice and visual culture.
Studio practice is complemented by discussion and in-class critique to engage with the diverse art and design community of Vancouver. The program culminates in a final exhibition of student work.

SIT Online Delivery & Covid-19 Response
Emily Carr University's top priority is the health and safety of our students, staff and faculty. We acknowledge the important role we play as a site for learning and community-building, and we are committed to doing our part in upholding physical distancing measures to help “flatten the curve” and slow the spread of COVID-19 in the broader community.
The institution has implemented several measures in alignment with advice from federal and provincial public health authorities, including the transition to online learning for the foreseeable future. The Summer Institute for Teens 2021 is expected to be delivered through online learning platforms. When circumstances allow, we will assess the possibility of gradually re-introducing in-person instruction on campus, pending appropriate approvals and only given availability of adequate space at the time.
We remain committed to offering meaningful art education to youth and teens, whether online or in-person. We invite you to grow your skill-sets and develop your portfolio through our online studios, delivered to the highest educational standard, and instructed by award-winning artists and designers.
