Learn to design, create and present artistic digital content in the only 15 –week accelerated certificate program offered in Ontario.

Program Highlights

In this unique, accelerated program (two semesters of full-time study completed in fifteen weeks), you will create time-based works of art in an inspiring, natural environment.

Unlike traditional artwork that is characterized by physical dimensions, time-based arts are defined by duration: a two-minute YouTube video clip, a 15 second pop-up ad on a website, or a minute- long new movie trailer playing in theatres.

Time-based arts can have a commercial or visual art application, and include applications such as motion graphics, video and sound compositions, film or slide based installations, large interactive art installations, or digital magazines. The need for professional digital content continues to grow; program graduates can work in advertising, design, film, education, or in a variety of cultural sector settings.

In this program you will:

  • Learn to create and present digital content for a variety of platforms: work that is visually and artistically strong in narrative and image
  • Explore a range of software tools and digital studio techniques, incorporate fine art practices, and understand how media culture influences and informs contemporary digital work
  • Work with accessible equipment; hand – held technologies and mobile devices - smart phones, tablets, laptops, digital cameras (still and video)
  • Learn from our expert faculty as well as digital designers who are currently working in the industry
  • Apply enhanced digital skills to your current art practice
  • Be prepared to pursue further digital media studies
  • Develop a professional digital portfolio and presence
