Downtown Toronto - Skippin' In The City
Dec 14, 2014
My name is Sefi Sloman, I'm 18 years old, I live in North York, Toronto, ON. The influence of arts and culture in Canada is strong and independent: My personal favourite form of art is the kind you don't find in a museum, but on the street, unexpected. Graffiti and other street art gives me inspiration and omits a luminous energy which is associated with non-profit, anonymous doings that add flare to a community.
OCAD University was originally established in Toronto in 1876 by the Ontario Society of Artists. Back then it was called the Ontario School of Art. In 1912, it was incorporated as the Ontario College of Art, becoming the first school in Canada dedicated to exclusively to the education of professional artists in fine and commercial art. In 1996, the name changed to the Ontario College of Art and Design, reflecting the growth of design programs. In 2010, to reflect the institution’s status as a university granted in 2002, the school became officially known as OCAD University.
