The Art Stream focuses on the importance of self confidence and refining the student’s ability to understand their emotions. Art is highly influential in raising consciousness, developing emotional sensitivity, and understanding feelings. As they approach graduation we solidify their understanding that Art is a means to connect with their inner self, the community and the world around them.

In this stream students will specialize in a minimum of one of the arts and a maximum of 2. The Challenge-based program will continue to offer multiple art-integration opportunities, and build on the fundamentals of artistic expression, creativity and appreciation.

In 1979, United Nations’ International Year of the Child, Arts Umbrella opened its doors to 45 children. It was an endeavour buoyed by the dream of five enthusiastic artists and parents concerned about the lack of arts education available to children. Since then, we’ve been sharing creativity through our visual arts, music, theatre, dance, and media arts programs. It amounts to 785 classes per year in four locations. And students range from preschoolers to pre-professionals. We base classes on arts-education principles, hire practicing artists, and use top-quality supplies. These are just a few of the ways we foster a place with no creative limits. Our vision is to create a better world where all young lives are inspired to pursue a lifelong journey towards self-expression, compassion, and humanity. At Arts Umbrella, children learn to dance, to paint, to sculpt, to create computer games and cartoons, and to perform. They experience the joy of creation and discover their own creative potential. They learn to appreciate the arts. Most important, through arts education, children gain self confidence, independent thinking, technical skills, discipline, and even improved academic results and specific career direction. Numerous studies indicate that people who receive arts education early in life reap many tangible, long-term, life-changing benefits and gain skills that can help them well into adulthood.
