    Since 1974, the Victoria College of Art has minted more than 5,000 fine-arts diplomas for its alumni, making it the largest independent art school on Vancouver Island. The faculty's expertise extends into a panoramic array of artistic disciplines, including painting, design and installation, photography, and art history. The college offers a number of certificates in addition to its fine-arts diploma, including fine-arts-related-occupation certificates in textiles, mould-making, and certificate-painting. Pint-sized Picassos take their first brushstrokes in summer camp classes, which draw on kid-friendly themes such as fairy tales, time travel, and mask-making.

  • Sassafras Art Studio
    Sassafras Art Studio teaches would-be jewellery artisans how to mould, fire, and finish their one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art using copper-flecked metal clay. Composed of tiny particles of copper, an organic binding agent, and water, art clay in its pre-kiln form exhibits all the mouldable, stampable, rollable qualities of clay, but when dried and fired, it transforms into hard metal, thus facilitating the creation of unique jewellery pieces or counterfeit coinage. At Sassafras Art Studio's six-hour workshops for beginners, certified metal clay artists walk students through the constructing, shaping, and texturing of their clay before showing them how to fire it with torches and in the kiln.

  • Frosty by Design
    Michelle Frost, a furnishing designer, has a way of making objects appear unrecognizable. At Frosty by Design, she does this with her line of Candian-made furniture paints, which are a water-based, low- to no-VOC formula with a vintage look that's easy to distress or leave clean and modern. The paint requires little to no prep, making it ideal for refinishing furniture, updating cabinets, or transforming old Barbies into miniature recreations of Renaissance sculptures. In addition to rehabbing old tables, bureaus, and chairs?which she sells at her shop?Frost leads workshops to teach visitors methods for mixing and applying colours, as well as tricks of the trade.

  • Fired Up! Paint Your Own Ceramics Studio
    Fired Up! Paint Your Own Ceramics Studio invites kids, teens, and adults to come in and create their own personalized art pieces. They can pick out unfinished ceramic pieces, choosing from bowls, cups, pots, figurines, and ornaments. Customers then paint and decorate their pieces before they apply a clear glaze that renders ceramics food-safe and nontoxic for home use and cleaning. The studio also goes beyond ceramics with glass fusion. To create a unique and translucent serving dish, candle holder, pendant, or other masterpiece, customers simply layer pieces of colored glass over a base and hand their work to a staff member to be fused in a kiln.
