Fine Arts – 360 Degrees of Art

What is art? For me, it is the creative expression of the mind, body and soul. Throughout the course we will perfect the image and then tear it apart. We explore the visually stunning oldies to the mind boggling contemporaries and learn to analyze and reflect on all paths of art. We will explore the traditions of portraiture, landscapes and still life through pencil, paint and sculpture. We will respond to contemporary concepts through installation, media arts and print. The goal is to make you a practicing visual artist in your own style.



Your Teacher – Peter Forde

peter forde portraitPeter 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.

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.
