Emily Grav

Emily Grav graduated from UVIC with an Honours BFA in Visual Arts in 2005. She gained extensive experience teaching Art and ESL while living in Taiwan from 2007 to 2008 and also directed children’s Art camps here in Victoria. In September 2008, Emily was inspired by the children she’d been teaching at a local art camp and decided to open The Paint Box School of Art, so she could teach art to kids, teens and adults, all year long! Emily enjoys teaching all mediums, especially drawing and painting.

Through an open and engaging teaching style, she encourages students to express themselves creatively through many mediums.

Since opening The Paint Box, Emily has exhibited her paintings in numerous art shows around Victoria. Having explored watercolour, acrylic and mixed media for many years she's now engrossed herself "En Plein Air" Paining (the art of painting out doors) using oil paint. In the last few months, this practice taken her to beaches in Hawaii, backyards in Vic West and the street corners of downtown Victoria. Keep your eyes open for her around your neighborhood.
