Ross Creek provides professional direction and focus to help you realize your inner artist through both individual discipline work and collaboration with other young artists. The Academies are an immersive program, while demanding, provides a competition-free environment. An exceptional faculty works closely with each student, stressing individual growth while encouraging achievement and cooperation.

The Academy encourages students to realise their dreams and gain the skills to do so while also making new friends from across Canada and the US who love the arts. All the academy programs run concurrently to encourage cross-disciplinary exchange and inspiration.

The goal of the Academy is to provide students 14–18 years old with an intensive hands-on experience in the arts in an environment that emphasizes creativity and innovation while using constructive critiques by professional artist mentors  to assist in artistic growth.  Students enrol in one discipline as their core activity with focused collaboration projects across all disciplines to create original multidisciplinary work.

Students have the opportunity to immerse themselves completely in the arts during the Summer Academy and learn new skills from renowned working professionals in the arts, and create new networks of others who share their passions.

The Academy ends with an Open House from 2:30 p.m. to approximately 5:00 p.m. on the final Friday afternoon. The Open House features the original work of all academy students, both collaborative and individual. Parents and friends are invited to celebrate many of the finished works and works-in-progress that the academy students have created during the two weeks. Please sign our guest book, explore the professional gallery then help yourself to coffee or tea until the students invite you to be seated.
