Attending Art School in Toronto

Not only is Toronto the largest city in Canada, it is also the epicenter of finance, culture, education, technology, and everything cosmopolitan. Located on the shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto has been coined the “Silicon Valley” of Canada, and “Hollywood North”, but just as noteworthy is the city’s numerous educational opportunities and countless cultural venues and events. Art students considering a school in Toronto will not only have a great variety of institutions to choose from, but also myriad museums and galleries, as well as an artistic community to enhance their own development as they pursue a study of the arts. Among its many museums, the Royal Ontario Museum is Toronto’s most prestigious museum. The museum displays its extensive permanent collection as well as ample gallery space for various exhibits. Other prominent museums include the Art Gallery of Ontario (neighboring the Ontario College of Art and Design), the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, the Museum of Textiles, and the Toronto Powerpoint Gallery. Additionally, Toronto hosts the annual Canadian National Exhibition, an 18 day fair that has a 128 year history of art, agricultural, and musical exhibitions that draws 1.3 million visitors each year. Clearly, these attractions reveal the cultural breadth of Canada’s capital, but a visit to Queen Street West is in order to truly appreciate the Toronto art scene. Considered the center of for music, fashion, broadcasting, and the arts, Queen Street West was always considered the neighborhood of the artist until trendy boutiques, restaurants, and nightlife raised rents, forcing most artists to move west of Spadina. The artistic origins of the street, however, remain, along with more than a few popular galleries, which include Angell Gallery, Bus Gallery, DeLeon White Gallery, East Queen Gallery, James Allen Fine Art, and the Stephen Bulger Gallery. Additionally, the annual Queen West Art Crawl is a weekend-long festival held in September, featuring exhibitions put on by area artists and art organizations.  These artists, organizations, galleries, and museums all contribute to Toronto’s reputation as Canada’s foremost city for the arts, and a wonderful place to live and study.
