Lake Country Art Gallery Presents Signature Workshop with Jerry Markham

Lake Country Art Gallery Presents Signature Workshop with Jerry Markham on Sept 27th & 28th

With the addition of a dedicated art workshop space in the Lake Country Art Gallery’s Art House space, the Lake Country Art Gallery is pleased to offer the third in its Signature Workshops Series: “Paint What You See with Jerry Markham”, which runs from 9am – 4pm, with a 1 hour lunch break on Saturday and Sunday, Sept 27th and 28th, to coincide with Culture Days. 

These workshops are designed to offer participants an in depth art making experience that will take one idea and really dive into it. 

For Jerry’s Markham’s workshop, “if you don’t see it, you can’t paint it”. Markham’s workshop will focus on teaching artists to really see, which often requires some unlearning of things that we are often totally unaware of. “Our brain fills in gaps resulting in painting what we think we see, not what is actually there,” explains Markham.

In this two-day class, through demonstrations, drawing and painting exercises, as well as critiques, you will learn techniques to improve your observational skills. 

The beauty of learning to REALLY see is that you can then paint anything – a still life, landscape, or the figure. There are no tricks, magic keys or fancy color combinations that will ever surpass your ability to observe.

This workshop is open to people who paint in oil, acrylic or watercolor, and any skill level.

Jerry Markham is a Canadian artist and plein air painter residing in BC, Canada who enjoys landscape, mountain, wildlife, and figure painting. You can find out more about Jerry and his work
