When you arrive to VanArts, a mixer is held on the first day of class so you can meet students from all other departments, including your “senior students” who started in the intake before yours. It’s a great way to connect, enjoy refreshments and make new friends.
Holidays are fun at VanArts, when our students get into the Halloween and Christmas spirit!
