    Advanced Study Certificates are an expansion of the popular Certificate in Fine Art Techniques (CEFA). The CEFA program offers an introduction to contemporary issues in art, and the materials, techniques, and skills fundamental to fine art practice.

And, sometimes the research question will be the foundation of a graduating student’s thesis project. 

    Examples of the research question:

    The Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre proudly presents the first solo exhibition of Vancouver-based artist Ian Penn (10). In Projections: A Monument to Personal Memory, Ian explores memory and post-memory – the Second Generation’s relationship to the Holocaust – through drawing, video, photography and sculpture.

A companion piece composed of family photographs transformed with wax from melted Shabbat candles addresses the complexity of heritage, ritual and remembrance.
