Space to create, whenever the feeling strikes.

Clustered in a 457-acre campus, a short subway ride from the heart of Canada’s art community, enjoy an artist’s refuge with space to leap farther, build higher, and imagine greater.

Make, move and mould without limits in:

  • Canada’s largest sculpture studio
  • 35,000 sq ft of sprung floors
  • 4,000 sq ft sound stage
  • 2,000 sq ft of carpentry studio
  • 300+ seat theatres
04

Industry experience starting day one.



What you create outside the classroom is just as important as what you learn inside it. Students who take on experiential education opportunities – placements, creative projects, and networking – start building their careers before graduation.

With a global reputation for success, an extensive network of alumni and an AMPD-dedicated experiential education coordinator, you’ll build your network, polish your portfolio, and gain valuable job skills.

05

Creative community, not competition.



AMPD’s core is its community, a network of collaboration-minded contemporaries excited to create beyond their imagination. You’ll be pushed by professors and classmates alike to create bigger and bolder. Still, you’ll never be alone in your pursuit of authentic expression.

Creativity as a communal activity is a founding principal of AMPD – artists don’t exist in vacuums, so neither should their work. At AMPD, you’ll be encouraged to connect with peers inside and outside the classroom with the next generation of arts.

Create your future here.
