Location

OCAD U 100 McCaul Street, room 656 Toronto, ON

Peter Chin (Queens University) will meet with all interested OCAD U students to promote the Bachelor’s in Education in Artist in Community Education (ACE). ACE is designed for practicing artists in visual art, music, drama and creative writing. It qualifies graduates for Ontario College of Teachers certification.

The presentation will be at 100 McCaul Street, room 656 on September 19, 2018 at 11:50 AM.

Dr. Chin will be accompanied by Cassidy Tsang, a former OCAD U student who completed the ACE program at Queens and is currently teaching in Toronto.

Courses & Practicum

In addition to the required curriculum courses of the regular program, all ACE students participate in arts focused courses that shape their experience while at the Faculty. 

The three-week Alternative Practicum offers an opportunity to gain experience in a concentration and placements are typically completed outside the public school system. By selecting a placement in a non-traditional educational, artistic, or blended arts-educational setting, teacher candidates broaden their knowledge and understanding of the arts and arts education. With guidance and support, ACE candidates are expected to initiate, design and develop an individualized alternative practicum. You can do the Alternative Practicum anywhere in the world as long as it is related to your program. We also provide travel fellowships that can help you get there. Previous candidates have acquired placements at, for instance, the National Arts Centre, the National Gallery, the Canadian Opera Company, the Stratford Festival, the Shaw Festival, Random House Publishing UK, Whitney Museum of Art NYC, the Lincoln Center Institute NYC, and historical re-enactment festivals in Italy.
