Eleanor Lowden

Markham Village Library, February 1, 2017, 10 a.m. until noon


Painting Demo with Eleanor Lowden


Eleanor has been professional artist for over 30 years. In 2014 she moved back to her hometown of Toronto from Calgary where she had spent 15 years building her career. She currently has 11 galleries across Canada from Victoria to Charlottetown that carry her work. She will give you a history of her career as an artist, and discuss how she has developed her unique style and inspiration for her work.  She will discuss with you her methods of promotion, and talk about the business of art: How to sell your work, how to price work, how to approach galleries.


At the February 8th workshop she will do a painting demo, and have each participant paint an urban scene with figures.  Bring along your own reference material, and learn how she layers her colors. For more information and insights, visit her website at

and meet the artist in this brief video of her process.
