Our academy is committed to becoming a local leader in arts education.  To achieve this goal we will be offering free workshops and master classes for area students to gain additional experiences with arts industry professionals from across the G.T.A. We hope to attract students ages 12 and up to our workshop series, targeting grades 6-8 with the hopes that our first class of Grade 9’s will begin here in September 2020. Students are under no obligations to enrol and can simply attend to take advantage of the workshops being offered. Classes will enhance a student’s portfolio for post-secondary arts programs and allow them exposure to the types of activities we offer at BRAA.

Masterclass & Workshop Guest Artists

The BRAA Difference includes opportunities for our students to work with arts industry professionals in a variety of different ways. We will be offering master classes at different times of the year focusing on music, theatre, dance, visual arts and audition preparations. Most of our artists have attended post-secondary institutions in Canada and have a wealth of experience to share with our students. We will also provide guest artist instruction during the day in our regular credit program as well. Below is a sampling of artists who are already working with BRAA to offer our students the most enriching arts education experience possible.
