The Art of Small things

The Art of Small things

This course immerses students in the study of “small things” – particularly flowers. Students will investigate the form and meaning of constructing works of art that pay homage to the details through drawing and painting. This course will be paired with a visit to the Botanical Gardens at the University of British Columbia – a landscape filled with natural inspiration.

Wind in the Tree Tops

Wind in the Tree Tops

From Tom Thomson’s “The Pine Tree” to Emily Carr’s “Wind in the Tree Tops”, trees have been a consistent and evocative subject for painting by the Canadian masters. Taking inspiration from the local landscape, this is a painting course that encourages students to develop painterly techniques through the careful examination of trees. Students will be using modelling paste and acrylics as they develop their interpretive brush-work. These techniques will bring the tree to life. Techniques developed will be transferable to subject matter in painting that bridges the gap between form and personal expression. This course will be paired with a field trip to Pacific Spirit Regional Park.

A Gallery for Inspiration

A Gallery for Inspiration

Engaging with art sharpens the eye, inspires the creative process and educates us through narratives about artists, their work, and the context for inspiration. Studying works of art by the master painters has always been an ongoing process for artists developing techniques in observation, art appreciation, and technique. Students will have an opportunity to peruse through the summer featured exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Selecting one piece for inspiration, students will be encouraged to create a mixed media composition that pays homage to the original.

Illustrating Vancouver

Illustrating Vancouver

This course offers students the chance to build observational skills and conceptual strategies – central to the process of drawing – while illustrating Vancouver. Students develop anaylitical skills through the direct observation of the city and it’s landmarks. This course highlights perspective drawing, sketching concepts, and principles of composition. A downtown tour of Vancouver will serve to inspire the process of cultivating a series of drawings.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Photography is the visual narrative of everyday life. Students will learn to narrate and structure story through digital photography, as they develop an understanding of photographic techniques, conceptual methods, and approaches to lighting and editing. A field trip to Deep Cove will enable the students to communicate and document their ideas through various mediums.

Vancouver Through the Eyes of Impressionism

Vancouver Through the Eyes of Impressionism

This course introduces students to various techniques in the world of impressionist and post imrpessionist painting – referencing the works of Claude Monet, Paul Cezanne (Post Impressionism), Tom Thomson and Vincent Van Gogh.
Paired with a trip to Kitsilano beach, students will complete a Vancouver-inspired landscape in the spirit of the impressionists – paying homage to light, colour, compostion, playful brushwork, and the idyllic natural environment where the mountains meet the sea.
