Welcome to the ARTS DEPARTMENT
Department Head: Mr. M. Onyschuk
The Arts are a very essential part of the life and atmosphere at Pine Ridge. The combination of an excellent teaching staff, and the strong arts culture in the school allows the students an opportunity to excel in the arts.
The Arts program offers approximately 60 courses in any year. Students entering at the grade nine level can take two arts (in consultation with the guidance office). The Art Department occupies a large section of the school. Some of the Arts classes on the first floor are: the drama theatre equipped with a full stage and theatre seating, a large music room, a MIDI lab, and a recording studio. On the second floor there are: three art studios, a computer lab used entirely for design purposes, a dance studio equipped with mirrors, and a complete dark room for photography. The Arts also offers clubs, arts activities, exhibitions, and performances.
