Education & Young People

The Prince’s School for Traditional Arts (PSTA) combines the teaching of the practical skills of traditional arts & crafts with an understanding of the philosophy inherent within them.

A Canadian initiative facilitated by Prince’s Charities Canada supports the postgraduate educational program at PSTA including:

  • Traditional painting techniques
  • Architectural crafts
  • Ceramic ornament and surface design
  • Traditional geometry
  • Contextual studies

Following His Royal Highness’ visit to First Nations University in 2012, discussions began between the school’s faculty of art and PSTA.  A partnership between the two schools was developed to provide PSTA with a unique and valuable opportunity to learn from Canada’s Aboriginal artistic traditions while giving FNU faculty and students access to PSTA’s unique approach to teaching traditional art and the philosophy behind it.

PSTA and FNU have since signed a memorandum of understanding that will see reciprocal faculty and student exchanges starting in the Fall of 2014.
