Our Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art brings all nations together in the pursuit of higher education, and sets new standards for aspiring artists. It is the only School of its kind in Canada, focusing on traditional First Nations Pacific Northwest Coast art.
Coast Mountain College created the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art to honour, recognize and continue the legacy of Haida artist Freda Diesing. She was a master carver, painter, tireless educator and champion of First Nations art and culture.
As courses will be offered through distance learning, you can stay in your home community while working with our world-renowned artists next semester!
