The aniVision exhibition 2019 is a showcase of the creative and innovative work produced by third year students in the Honours Bachelor of Animation program at Sheridan College. Curated by Professor Tony Tarantini,  the exhibition aims to entertain and educate. It illustrates the complexity of four distinct animated film pipelines: 2D, 3D, Stop Motion and Hybrid production. The exhibition also reveals how animation requires complex applied research methods including action research and creative problem solving. All twelve animated films produced in 2019 will be playing in the gallery throughout the exhibition so get a front row seat and enjoy the screening and the artwork.

The Visual and Creative Arts program is proud to exhibit Praxis: Knowing what we share and sharing what we knowThe curriculum of the Visual and Creative Arts program traverses many traditionally siloed studio environments.  As a program, it is important to us that our students are able to recognize the similarities and differences between courses and to port appropriate knowledge and skills between them.  To that end, each full-time faculty member prepared a whole-day discipline based workshop for full-time faculty over a five-week period.  During these sessions, we discussed pedagogical matters, material concerns and possibilities as well as commonalities in studio practices and shared language that we can be conscious of in the classroom.  It takes a great deal of trust, generosity and good will to engage in a practice of sharing what we know between colleagues and the resulting showcase is evidence of this intimate and valuable process.

The Child Care Centre Art Exhibit

Trafalgar Campus | Sheridan Gallery | AA-Wing


May 21 - June 9, 2019


Over the past year, several programs within the Faculty of Animation, Arts and Design (FAAD) donated all kinds of loose tools and unneeded materials to Sheridan’s Child Care Centre. Educators and children then took all of these odds and ends and created unique pieces of art!

Art is used to express our emotions and tell our story to the world. Children can see or think “outside of the box” and we hope this exhibition will inspire adults to do the same.

Please drop by the art gallery to view this collection of artwork. Don’t forget to sign the guestbook to show your support. The children will enjoy reading your comments!

Work in Progress

Trafalgar Campus | Sheridan Gallery | AA-Wing

July 3 – September 14, 2018     


 Work in progress orange and black logo

How do you imagine a public artwork that connects conceptually to its intended location and communicates shared values of creativity and collaboration both in process and form?
Work in Progress is a response to this question proposed for the second-floor Creativity Commons in Hazel McCallion Campus B-Wing. Led by faculty members Douglas Donald and Claire Ironside, students, faculty and staff from across Sheridan’s campuses worked together to develop and test the concept. The proposed sculpture is made from interconnected acrylic polygons (their number correlating to Sheridan’s programs, degrees, diplomas and certificates) etched with the Sheridan brand. Using projection mapping technology, the sculpture’s surface is illuminated by a dynamic data bank of images that provide insight into creative processes throughout the College. Team members plan to design, render, fabricate and install Work in Progress using Sheridan community resources.
This exhibition invites you to go behind the scenes of the development of the Work in Progress proposal to learn about the overall concept and the questions, challenges and solutions recommended by its team in response to community feedback. The artwork’s creation is envisioned as a learning and teaching resource that provides hands-on experience for students from concept to installation. You can explore the different stages of models, floor plans and elevations as well as samples of the materials proposed for its fabrication. Interactive tablets provide an in-depth look at the team’s development process and a whiteboard is available for visitors to work through ideas, raise questions and offer responses to the project.

Work in Progress was previously installed at the Creative Campus Galleries at HMC Campus in Mississauga
