Program Description

Artstream is a shared program between Bow Valley College and Alberta University of the Arts (AUArts). It is a bridge to an art and design education for those who have the artistic ability, but do not meet AUArts’ academic or English language proficiency requirements for admission.
 
The Artstream Certificate is a year-long program. You will take customized academic upgrading courses at Bow Valley College that will help you do well in Liberal Studies at AUArts.
 
The application process starts with AUArts where you’ll submit an art portfolio showing your talent. Once approved, you may be referred for an academic skills assessment at Bow Valley College. This assessment will determine your acceptance into the program.

"In Artstream, I saw a chance to share my creativity and get the feedback and guidance that I had long been lacking. Between Bow Valley College and ACAD, Artstream has offered me those very things, and it has revealed the importance of education within art."
