CyberARTS Programs

CyberARTS at the elementary level is an interdisciplinary, project-based visual arts program that integrates the Ontario Curriculum Expectations with advanced study and exploration in traditional and digital art.

CyberARTS students will complete the same Ontario Curriculum Expectations as students in a regular school program. The core difference is that, compared to a regular elementary school program, CyberARTS students will receive more advanced visual arts instruction and have regular access to our CyberARTS computer lab and a wider-range of traditional and digital arts equipment. Also, they will more often express what they have learned in language and social studies through the visual arts.

What are you looking for in an applicant?
Successful applicants demonstrate that they create artistic works often; work to improve their knowledge and skills related to digital and/or traditional artistic expression over time; and demonstrate the ability and desire to work at challenging tasks over sustained periods of time.

The ideal applicant is not necessarily a student who excels in all subject areas but a student who enjoys learning and expressing themselves through the visual arts, in whatever form.

Students interested in attending one of the elementary CyberARTS programs are not required to submit any supplemental application or information.

A completed Central Student Interest Program Application is all that is required.

If the number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces available, all applicants will be eligible for the random selection process. Information about the application and admissions process for this centralized program will be available in October 2022.
