Pickering College has a vibrant, varied and exciting arts program featuring expert instructors and arts professionals. Some of our most popular offerings include:
Actors enjoy hands-on involvement in producing and performing several plays within the school and in drama festivals. In the past, students have performed Little Shop of Horrors, Macbeth, Bye Bye Birdie, and coming this year, School of Rock.
Students can explore their love for music and instrumental talents through a variety of ensembles, including concert, jazz, guitar and percussion groups and vocal groups. Our ensembles enjoy individual and group instruction while performing at school events as well as local, national and international venues.
Our Visual Arts program balances theory with instruction in various techniques, including sculpture, painting, drawing, photography and computer animation. Along with studio activities and opportunities to exhibit their work, students also learn art history and visit prominent galleries, such as the Art Gallery of Ontario.
