Greg Charlton

Instructor: Foundation Visual Arts (FVA)

Bachelor of Fine Arts – OCAD University
Instructor Development Program – NBCC

“My goal, because I’m teaching in design, is that I really want to give students a strong design foundation so when they start to create their own work, in their studios, they have the tools to make something that is purposeful and impactful for their audience – that creating good work comes from an informed place.”

Greg Charlton is an Instructor in the Foundation Visual Arts program. He is the lead curriculum developer for the FVA Design courses and also the Writing for Visual Artists course. Greg began his teaching career at the Art Gallery of Ontario – Gallery School, and since then, has taught at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, the University of New Brunswick and NBCCD.

Greg’s studio practice encompasses drawing, painting, art installation and exhibition design. Greg has received project grant funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts council; and most recently, the New Brunswick Arts Board – for a project entitled Archaeology of Place. His work can be found in several public art collections, including the Canada Council for the Arts, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, the University of New Brunswick and the New Brunswick Arts Board.

In 2010 Greg created the Vorti-Scope art installation on the Fredericton waterfront. This sculptural building allowed visitors to enter the small room and stand inside a camera obscura (a very simple camera composed of a lens and a hole to the outside). The lens could be turned to view the area surrounding the Vorti-Scope, and the image from outdoors projected onto a table in real-time, complete with moving cars and people. This installation also visited Eastport, Maine, at the Tides Institute.

A fun fact about Greg: In the early 2000’s, he drew incredible floor-to-ceiling drawings in the attic of a rented apartment in Fredericton. Although Greg no longer lives there, his drawings still do.
