What is CyberARTS?


CyberARTS at LCI is a specialized program focusing on visual arts and digital media. Each year students earn two credits - one in Visual Arts and one in Communications Technology - for a total of eight credits and a CyberARTS certification upon graduation.

The CyberARTS curriculum is built on experiential inquiry-based learning. Hands-on projects are geared towards developing a student who graduates from the program with excellent critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills - tools that are essential for today's fast paced and ever changing world, regardless of their chosen profession.

Post Secondary


CyberARTS graduates have gone on to post-secondary programs such as Creative Advertising, Engineering, Illustration, Industrial Design, 3D Animation, Drawing and Painting and more at institutions such as The University of Toronto, York University, Ryerson University, OCADU, Humber College, University of Waterloo and more.
