About Garth Laidlaw

Hi there! I'm an artist currently working out of Guelph, Ontario. I paint landscapes, figures, still lifes, and also illustrate imaginative works for children's picture books, comics, and games, and can be seen on my Illustration, Comic Illustration, and Fine Art pages. 

I also animate comprehensive, communicative videos for various organizations. The videos I’ve made can all be seen on my Animation page.

I also run a weekly drop-in figure drawing class for the community of Guelph and beyond that takes place every Tuesday night.

I teach art locally, and also online with a personalized, all-inclusive curriculum, online meet-ups, frequent Q&A, and plenty of resource sharing. Most recently, I’m even offering more affordable 8-week online classes. You can see all of this on my Training page.
