The goal of the Fine Arts program is for students to develop the ability to visually communicate their ideas, feelings and experiences through skill development in the use of a variety of art mediums. Students are encouraged to explore, problem solve, challenge themselves and share their acquired skills and enthusiasm for participating in a creative process. The Fine Arts program emphasizes awareness of the natural and man-made environment, the enjoyment of 'hands-on' participation and the healing processes of reflection and thought which foster 'building processes'. The program also endeavors to accommodate and support all skill levels and encourages students to become familiar with the art of different cultures and the works of professional artists, past and present.

Students must be at least 19 years old and have been out of school for six months. Students must earn 8 High School credits:
i Compulsory: Gr. 12 English, Gr. 12 Mathematics
i Two other credits from Gr. 12 level (Academic or Vocational)

i Four other credits (Gr. 9 - Gr. 12 Academic or Vocational)

Note: Credits previously earned may be used for the completion of the Mature Student Diploma. Depending on the Vocational program chosen and academic skill level, students may need between one (1) to two (2) years to earn the credits required for the diploma.

The Pre-Industry Training course is a 5 or 10 month, full-time, industry-needs based program. The program consists of:
