Canadian Digital Art School - The Centre for Arts and Technology was once again present at this year’s Education & Career Fair at the Delta Grand Okanagan in Kelowna on Monday Feb 3rd 2014. Crowds of mostly high school students from all over the Okanagan came to get inspired about their post-secondary schooling and career options. Educational institutions, government institutes, employers and volunteer agencies from all over B.C. and Alberta were on-site to entice potential students and career-seekers to choose their programs.
This year, The Centre for Arts and Technology (CAT) Kelowna was the bag sponsor of the event and saw hundreds of students perusing the exhibitor booths filling their CAT bags with program calendars and other items from each of the over 50 booths. The Centre for Arts and Technology booth featured interactive displays to engage students with a taste of what to expect if they enroll. Instructors and current students were on hand to showcase animation, sketching, graphic design, Photoshop and photography, inviting any passersby to see what CAT has to offer.
