Description:Artist in Community Education (ACE) is designed for practicing artists in visual art, music, drama and creative writing. It qualifies graduates for Ontario College of Teachers certification.

Regular Practicum placements mean that you will work alongside other education professionals in classrooms for 20 weeks: one component in the first summer (3 weeks); two components in the fall (3 weeks each); one component in the winter term (4 weeks) followed by an alternative practicum (3 weeks); and one component in the second summer (4 weeks). The three-week Alternative Practicum offers an opportunity to gain experience in a concentration and placements are typically completed outside the public school system. By selecting a placement in a non-traditional educational, artistic, or blended arts-educational setting, teacher candidates broaden their knowledge and understanding of the arts and arts education. With guidance and support, ACE candidates are expected to initiate, design and develop an individualized alternative practicum. You can do the Alternative Practicum anywhere in the world as long as it is related to your program. We also provide travel fellowships that can help you get there. Previous candidates have acquired placements at, for instance, the National Arts Centre, the National Gallery, the Canadian Opera Company, the Stratford Festival, the Shaw Festival, Random House Publishing UK, Whitney Museum of Art NYC, the Lincoln Center Institute NYC, and historical re-enactment festivals in Italy.
