April at Capilano University is far more than exams and papers—it also means being able to take in top quality art produced by students in a number of programs. We’re proud to showcase the work of the 2016 graduates from Capilano University’s Faculty of Fine & Applied Arts.

They came in with raw talent, and after years of hard work and dedication, they’re leaving with portfolios, demo reels, performance experience, friendships and connections that will help them build successful careers in the years to come. Come celebrate the accomplishments of our amazing graduates! Attending these events is also a great way for prospective students to see the calibre of work that comes out of a given program.
