About Art Skills

Art Skills combines mutual support and training to create collaboration between contemporary arts students, community partners and SFU's School for the Contemporary Arts, providing real world experience and skills development. A Fall SCA Professional Practice series offers additional learning opportunities for students to gain skills they can practice hands-on in  internships, practicums and field placements. At the end of the project, students will share what they have learned by participating in a Community Skills Share. The goal of this project is to create a legacy that can support future students. 

Supported by SFU Work Integrated Learning and SFU School for the Contemporary Arts. This project has been funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Innovative Work-Integrated Learning program and CEWIL Canada’s iHUB.
