Our 97,000 square-foot building is a dynamic hub of creative and intellectual activity. Facilities of this scope mean exceptional opportunities, especially given our emphasis on praxis, where creativity and research support a unique learning environment.
In this era of the Covid-19 pandemic, the academic programs of the Marilyn I. Walker School are using online platforms to proceed with full-time teaching and learning in synchronous and asynchronous modes. This is an enormous challenge for the students and the faculty, instructors, and professional staff. We celebrate their tenacity and success as we proceed through 2020-21 to the promise of better times when we re-open the School to once again host vivid on-site and in-person artistic exploration in downtown St. Catharines.
