Artist Residency Opportunities

We've changed our name, but not our commitment to providing an outstanding art education experience for our students. Our name reflects the breadth of our expanded programming: art, heritage, and new design studies offered in full-time, part-time, and accelerated formats; available at multiple campus locations and partner institutions.

Haliburton logo

The prominent letter H in our logo is inspired by the iconic Haliburton campus red doors (designed by Gord Peteran) that symbolize the opening of creative possibilities for students in all our programs, and our longstanding history in providing art education since 1968

+ Design denotes the addition of a unique suite of programs that fuse hands-on studio art practices with design studies

The art of design

Design Studies with A Difference

Our programs are different; they are built on a design education philosophy that integrates art, material practices, production techniques, and experiential learning - all explored through the lens of design discipline principles, elements and processes.

Each program is structured to inspire creative thinkers, builders and problem solvers, and to provide students with solid technical skills training. Students work with professional designers and apply their skills in state-of-the-art studios.

Be the one who shapes the future of design. Prepare for all creative possibilities at Haliburton School of Art + Design.
