The Arts

At West Humber CI, we offer one of the most diverse ARTS programs in the TDSB. There is something for everyone at any level of experience. We offer Visual Arts, Visual Arts with an Aboriginal Focus, and Yearbook courses, creating and displaying beautiful works of art in many different mediums. Photography and Media Arts courses give students an opportunity to create and manipulate art in the digital world using technology.

Our Drama program provides students with the opportunity to write and perform original scripts, learn mime, movement, storytelling and improvisation. The Dance program is a wonderful hands-on comprehensive program that covers many diverse styles from Bollywood to Hip-Hop, and provides many performance opportunities at school and in the community.

Our Music program has Canada's largest Steel Pan credit course, a sensational marching Drum Line & Percussion Ensemble, and Guitar classes from beginner to advanced levels. All of our music ensembles are open to students from beginner to advanced. Our students perform regularly at high-profile events and concerts all over the GTA, and have a five-day music trip every two years.
