Ian Paterson, Foundation faculty, has held exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Musée Carnavalet and the Galerie Françoise Paviot in Paris. Paterson, who received his BA from Trinity University of Toronto in Canada, has also held solo exhibitions in Montreal and Sarajevo. Ian splits his time between teaching and making art.

Paterson recently published Searching for Godot: a semi-fiction 20 years in the making, in which he narrates his journey to find Samuel Beckett’s elusive character, Godot.

His class Drawing for Portfolio in Paris focuses on drawing as the foundation of visual art. He will teach students the various ways to experience and explore the visual world through drawing. The class will experiment with different drawing materials and techniques, learning skills, and open up the way toward personal vision and expression.
