About Barry Coombs
I’m a visual artist, art instructor, workshop leader and have been featured in the UK’s Leisure Painter magazine. I live in Hamilton, Ontario. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MY ARTWORK: I’ve exhibited my paintings, drawings and sculpture in Canada, Taiwan, China and South Korea and represented Canada at the G20 World Artist Festival in Seoul, South Korea in November of 2010.
Please, see my Gallery page for more information.
My watercolours are featured in the April 2013 issue of Leisure Painter, the best-selling ‘learn to draw and paint’ magazine from the United Kingdom. THE STUDY was chosen for the front cover.
Currently, I’m represented by the ART ETC Gallery at the Art Gallery of Burlington in Burlington, Ontario.
MY TEACHING: I’ve been teaching art to adults on a part-time basis for over twenty years. I currently teach watercolour classes at the Arts on Adrian studio in west-end Toronto and at the Dundas Valley School of Art in Dundas, Ontario.
My teaching focuses on watercolour painting and pen and ink drawing. I’m very organized and demonstrations, individual attention and critiques are important elements of my approach to teaching. I always try to maintain a positive and constructive attitude and I can work with students of all levels of skill and experience.
Over two decades, I have led dozens of outdoor painting and sketching holidays in Canada, Europe and Mexico. Workshops in 2014 included San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick and Lucca, Italy as well as Toronto, Ontario.
