Studio Art

How many styles of Batman can we design? Can you really get a job designing Star Wars characters here in Vancouver? Where did they get the idea for Homer Simpson? Through the course we will explore some of these themes and develop our personal practice of designing and drawing characters. We will start with the classical skills and explore themes and materials, all on the way to learning something more unique. The aim is to balance your personal style and goals with new knowledge to help push you to be your best character artist.

Your Teacher – 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.
