To be filled out by parent or guardian
If the participant does not have any, enter "none". KIAC staff will follow up for more information regarding severity and medical assistance.
Is there anything special our instructors and staff should know about the applicant to make their experience more comfortable? Do they need lots of quiet time? Super shy? Prone to nosebleeds? Recent loss of family? If there is any additional information you'd like to communicate, please do so here. This information is for student comfort only and has no relation to the acceptance/waitlist of the application. We will follow up if more information is needed.


Please provide a reference. This can be a teacher, community leader, mentor, etc, but cannot be a family member.
Phone number and/or email
If you would like to include a hand written or pre-typed reference letter instead of filling out this field, you can scan and email it to programs@kiac.ca, or have your reference email us directly, or drop off the letter at KIAC in person.


In a couple sentences, please tell us about yourself. What do you like doing for fun? Where did you grow up? Any fun facts we should know?
There is no right or wrong answer, we're just curious!


Participants will complete ONE workshop during the week. Please let us know which workshop you prefer. We do our best to accommodate.
Printmaking is a very old process... Ancient in fact! Meshell will introduce students to the incredible world of colourful inks and printing techniques that have been refined over the last two thousand years! This class is a gallop through the basics of printmaking: from the quick impressions of the monoprint to the intricacies of the linocut, and all the potatoes in between. Students will be encouraged to develop their image making throughout their explorations with different printmaking techniques. Be warned: this workshop will be playful, messy (not too messy…), and COLOURFUL!
During this five day performing arts intensive, students will explore and hone their skills in dance and movement with Val Herdes of Heart of Riverdale. Each day will feature different games, physical activities, and movement-based learning culminating in solo or group dance pieces to be showcased to parents and friends at the end of the week. Students will learn the lingo of dance and performing arts (why are rehearsals important? What is a stage manager? And what does "from the top" mean!?) in a dynamic journey from tiny idea to rehearsal to performance - all in a safe, nurturing, and collaborative environment. This workshop is for EVERYONE. All experience levels and physical abilities are welcome!


If this is an issue, please let us know in the "other needs & considerations" section above. Provided meals may be possible in some circumstances.
