- Field trips to tour visual fine art artist studios, galleries, museum collections and archives, exhibitions, the premises of fine art printers, framers, and book binders, and fine art festivals (including a field trips to Le Mois de la Photo in Montreal and Toronto's Contact photography festival in alternating years)
- Film screenings, slide shows, and related visual fine art presentations in the local community and at the school
- Collaborative student community projects and student committee initiatives
Readings and Research: Occasionally articles or other readings and/or independent
library or Internet research may be requested by instructors or guests, on a case-by-case basis, as necessary in preparation for a particular P&P session.
