Welcome to the Vancouver Island School of Art’s annual Open House!

Every year we eagerly anticipate welcoming our staff, instructors and students along with their families and friends into the school to view our students’ artworks from this past semester.

This year we have decided to move our Open House online so you can view these wonderful pieces from the comfort of your home and more easily share this online gallery space with friends and family.

The artworks are categorized by medium and then by course. Click on the courses below (the blue text) or use the drop down menu at the top of this page to see the work. Thank you and happy viewing!
