Visual art classes provide students with the opportunity to creatively actualize their ideas and emotions, and to look critically at the visual world around them. Students learn techniques in drawing, photography, painting, image manipulation, and sculpture to help them convey their ideas, create mood and affect, and comfortably express themselves through artistic means.
Students and Parents are strongly encouraged to visit our Band webpage for further information including practice schedules, handouts, and details on VC's music program.
There are eleven ensembles within the music department at Vancouver College providing enrichment and performing opportunities for students from Grades 7 to 12. We have a proud history that goes back to 1947 and are very involved with school and community events. Vancouver College Band ensembles travel internationally and provincially to participate as well as compete in local and regional music festivals. We strive for excellence and believe that success in music leads to success in life.
The Performing Arts Department offers students the opportunity to engage in a wide range of theatrical experiences such as major productions, talent shows, and theatre visits. There are three major productions each year; A major musical or play (alternating yearly), A Night with VC Talent (a K-12 talent show), and the BC Catholics One Act Play Festival.
