Joel A Prevost
Born in Lac Saint-Jean, Quebec, Canada in 1963, Joël A. Prévost spent a few years on Vancouver Island before moving to Nova Scotia to study Community Development. He then continued his education and worked for a few years in Ottawa before returning to Western Canada in the mid-80's.
Joël spent the next twenty years back in British Columbia, where he worked as a facilitator with non-profit organizations in planning and fundraising. This experience led him to become a promoter in music, theatre and visual arts, as well as taking on the role as a producer for concerts, music series and cultural events. During this time he also studied and taught himself sculpting.
In 2006 Joël settled in Montréal where he established L’Atelier de Sculpture du Village. There he taught sculpture to students whose backgrounds encompassed related art fields such as cinema, the circus, 3D animation and video games. He also instructed visual artists seeking to perfect their skills in rendering the human form. Joël has recently relocated from Montréal and established the Vancouver Island Sculpting Studio, in British Columbia, a professionally set up clay and plasticine sculpting studio. With over 20 years’ experience as a sculptor, he currently teaches sculpting using life models to students at all levels.
