Spotlight

An Exhibition of ConEd Students

The work created by our students in Continuing Education continues to amaze and inspire us. In fact, it is so good that we’ve decided to shine a spotlight on their accomplishments through a juried exhibition of their work.

Spotlight is the first exhibition of its kind, in Alberta, that highlights a broad range of art, craft and design pieces created by teens and adults who have taken courses with us over the years.  It will showcase pieces that students created in class, or outside of class with the skills they they’ve gained from our courses.  Current and past students of ACAD Continuing Education are eligible.  Sorry, current ACAD staff, faculty and degree students are not eligible. 

Here are the details
