About The Teacher
With instructional experience at the National Art School in Sydney, Australia, the Banff Centre of the Arts and Creativity (where Colin was the first Artist in Residence in 1969), the University of Calgary, Colin has taught students of all levels, from complete beginners to those on the path to becoming full-time professional artists. As Artist-in-Residence, he established the Visual Arts University Transfer program at Keyano College in northern Alberta. E. Colin Williams was born in England in 1935 and attended the Royal College of Art in London in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s when the world of art was undergoing profound changes. With a depth and breadth of experience that includes classical training, exposure to cutting-edge artistic influences, and decades working as a visual artist, Colin continues to explore new directions in his own creative journey even in his 80s.
