Program Description

Artstream is a shared program between Bow Valley College and the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD). It is a bridge to an art and design education for those who have the artistic ability, but do not meet ACAD’s 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 ACAD.
 
The application process starts with ACAD 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.

"When I first heard of Artstream, it was exactly what I was looking for. The design of the program focused on our strengths and weaknesses and on this path we were able to overcome self-doubts and evolve on a level I did not think was possible."
