Students will investigate the ideas and materials that created artistic masterpieces while creating their own art works in this fun and inclusive class. Learning how to see with an artist’s eye, students will develop their own artistic style through a range of artistic materials and processes including painting, printmaking, sculpture and graphic design. They will explore the work of great masterpieces, local artists and community art projects. This course will focus on self expression and exploration through the lens of art history and global cultural identities.
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.
