Inside an Art School

Boris and I visited the Graduation Show at Emily Carr University yesterday morning. I spent most of my visit looking at the visual art section, while Boris checked out design.

There was a very broad selection of work on display both in terms of medium and quality but I found a few gems to inspire me.

I never went to art school so it’s interesting for me to visit and see the results of four years (?) of art education. I still think self-taught is the way to go, but I’m probably biased…
