Paradise Valley Summer Visual Arts Camps

2024 Paradise Valley Summer School of Visual Art

Samuel Roy-Bois

July 8 to 12

Young artists ages 8 - 15 will explore their surroundings with artist Samuel Roy-Bois in the beautiful setting of Paradise Valley. This environment provides an ideal source to explore concepts of form and color. Students will receive in-depth instruction in collage, drawing, painting and printmaking. Working in small studio groups, teachers emphasize individual skill development and artistic style. This week long studio program is well balanced with outdoor recreation and studio time.

RoyBoisSamuel Roy-Bois (Quebec city, 1973) is an award-winning artist and Associate Professor in Sculpture at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus. He is widely recognized for his large-scale installations and interdisciplinary practice exploring the complex dynamics defining our relationships to the built environment. His work, which includes sculpture, installation, performance, photography, drawing and writing, explores the role of objects in sensemaking. His practice is broad, and finds inspiration in the everyday, the critique of modes of cultural production and the pure pleasure of making. Roy-Bois has an MFA Degree in Studio Arts from Concordia University (Montréal) and a BFA from Université Laval, (Quebec city). His work has been presented at The Esker Foundation, Calgary; The Polygon Gallery, North Vancouver; Carleton University Art Gallery, Ottawa; Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal; Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; Musée National des Beaux Arts du Québec, Québec city; SFU Art Gallery, Burnaby; Oakville Art Galleries, Oakville; Kamloops Art Gallery; Vancouver Art Gallery and Point éphémère, Paris.
