Graphic Arts is where creativity meets function. This course is designed for the artist that finds the art of games, comics, films, packaging and advertising more appealing than gallery art. The computer will be our main tool as we explore Photoshop, Illustrator, 3D design and web design software. We will learn the tools that freelance design is made of and learn the skills that many employers in Vancouver are looking for.
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.
