Artists in Bloom happening April 21-28


We are back! After a couple of years that the event could not take place due to the pandemic, Artists in Bloom is back for its 24th annual edition! We are excited to welcome you to the event and to show you what our talented student artists will produce.

Artists in Bloom is an annual event held at Dawson College through which the Blue Ring Society, the ambassador organization of Dawson students, raises funds for a charitable cause. Over the past 23 years, the event has raised around $150,000 for a variety of causes. This year all the funds raised will benefit the Support for Educational Assessment Services Fund (SEAS). Assessments made possible for students requiring services from the AccessAbility Department.

The AccessAbility department offers a variety of services to meet the needs of students with documented disabilities and for whom the disability significantly and persistently impacts their learning.  Services are available for students registered in day or evening credit courses.

They provide reasonable accommodations for students with a diagnosis of hearing, visual, motor, or organic impairments, learning disabilities, neurological and/or mental health disorders.  Services are also offered to students who, due to an accident or illness, will require temporary support.

The event puts on display over two dozen talented student artists in the 3D Animation & Computer Generated Imagery and Illustration programs who create new works of art over a two-hour period, which will then be auctioned off. This year, for the first time, Artists in Bloom will be taking place in a hybrid format – partially online and partially in person.

Here are the details of the event:

Online auction and pre-orders of digital prints begin at 6 PM at until Thursday, April 28, 2022 at 6 PM.

Pre-orders of digital prints can also be made in person on April 22, 25, 26, 27, and 28 at Dawson in the Upper Atrium from 11 AM – 2 PM.
