AUArts Students @ SAIT Residence - Live tour and Q&A
One of the many benefits of AUArts sharing a campus with SAIT, is that all AUArts students are welcome to live directly on-campus at the SAIT Residence! To ensure you receive the full AUArts experience in residence, we have designated a specific section of East Hall Residence just for AUArts students. This means you will be able to have an AUArts roommate, plus have full access to the shared Arts Studio in the building. Thinking about living in residence this Fall? Join us for a live-tour of the SAIT residence.
Artstream Certificate Program | Web Presentation Live-Session
The Artstream Certificate Program is designed to provide a bridge to an art and design education for applicants who do not meet AUArts’ academic and/or English proficiency requirements for First Year Undergraduate Studies, but who demonstrate satisfactory levels of art portfolio achievement. Learn more about this program, expected learning outcomes and the application process.
- No upcoming live-sessions at this time.
Online Portfolio Reviews
Join us for a 20-minute one-on-one online Portfolio Review with our Admissions Committee to review your portfolio to make it even stronger!
Once we have provided you with a date and time for your review, we will send you an MS Teams link so that you can join your meeting with your reviewer. At the time of your review, please ensure you login 5-10 minutes early, and are ready with your artwork, a computer, internet access, and a microphone so you can have a conversation with our team member. A web camera is also highly recommended.
Your portfolio should consist of 12 pieces of recent, original artwork such as sketchbooks, photography, 3D-sculptures or ceramics, paintings, digital drawings, animation or any other medium you work with.
We also love to see works-in-progress as it is a terrific way to learn about your process. The artwork should be ready to present either as digital images to share on your screen or the physical pieces to be shown via live camera. Please ensure you have a camera and microphone for your review so you can interact with the reviewer member.
