The late sixties and early seventies were the golden period of art education at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC, Canada. With as many as 17 faculty, ARTE, the acronym used by the department of Art Education for over fifty years, was set to cater to the influx of “baby boomers” that flocked to UBC. The studio program in the Fine Arts Department had not yet been established, and for young artists, ARTE was a much sought after program.
