Vancouver Island School of Art


I am very grateful to now be a part of the Vancouver Island School of Art, an accredited private post-secondary contemporary art school established in Victoria in 2004.

VISA offers an amazing variety of courses and workshops in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, crafts, video art, art history and art theory. All of their courses and workshops can be applied for credit towards a Certificate of Visual Art or Diploma of Fine Art. Their Certificate of Visual Art  is also the equivalent of the 1st year of a BFA degree at the emily carr university of art + design.

If you’re in the area you should join me for my first workshop: Drawing Today: Illustration and Narrative (August 8, 9 & 10, 10am – 5pm ).

In this workshop we will focus on the use of drawing in illustration and narrative art, historically and today. We’ll talk about the traditions of storytelling, iconography, cave paintings, illustrated manuscripts and documentation as we use illustration as a tool for the narration and examination of our own life and times.

Inspiring Artists include:

Henry Darger, Emily Prince, Pavel Pepperstein, William Kentridge, Barry McGee, Yoshitomo Nara, Takashi Munrakami, Marcel Dzama, Amy Cutler and Jockum Nordstrum.
