Professional Development in the Arts

Professional Development in the Arts 35 

This course is an opportunity for dedicated fine arts focused students to explore the arts to a higher level of professionalism. It was created to help students prepare for career choices in the arts and learn the processes of resume writing, portfolio creation, creating contacts in the arts, marketing, fostering passion for the arts, and demonstrating through records and artifacts, their growth as artists.

In this course students will:

  • purposefully reflect upon learning experiences in the Fine Arts disciplines as a cross-disciplinary group,
  • explore how they see themselves as artists,
  • become more aware of the process involved in preparing for the marketing and business aspect of being a professional artist in art, music, drama, dance, design, writing or film.

Successful completion of PD in the Arts 35 is required to achieve the Calgary Board of Education Fine Arts Certificate upon graduation.

Download the Fine and Performing Arts Certificate Checklist to see if you will qualify by the end of Grade 12.
