What is art? Throughout this course Peter will guide students to perfect the image and then tear it apart. Students will explore the visually stunning oldies and the mind boggling contemporaries to learn how to analyze, reflect and learn from all mediums of artistic expression. Students will explore the traditions of portraiture, landscapes and still life through pencil, paint and sculpture. As a group, students will respond to contemporary problems through media arts and print. The goal is to make the student a practicing visual artist with their own unique style.
Your Educator – Peter Forde
Peter aims to make the classroom his studio where creativity is the leader of learning. Coming from a world of traditional Ireland and teaching in the creative hub of London, England, Peter has developed a broad range of artistic experiences. He has exhibited in Ireland and England through painting, media arts, performance and theatre and sees himself as much of a teacher as an artist. Currently Peter prints at Malaspina studios in Granville Island and exhibits at galleries in Vancouver. Peter values the role of the teacher as the facilitator to the student’s creativity but draws from his technical and expressive experiences to bloom the student’s unique ability. The arts define our culture and our identity and at Brainboost we are delighted to celebrate these qualities. Expect the fun of the carnival, with the sincerity of gallery.
