Professionally, Jerry Thomas has been an artist for more than 60 years, but he's been drawing since before he could even talk. He grew up in a family of artists and while he received a liberal arts education, he has never received formalized art training or even taken an art class. Everything he's learned he's studied or taught himself, and he is proud to say since he was 18 he's never had a day in his art career that he didn't have a paying job to do.

Now, Jerry focuses mostly on passing all of his expertise and knowledge on to his students, offering classes in a variety of media and subject matter. His most popular class is his Friday afternoon art clinics, which he's hosted at the Cultural Arts Centre for more than 15 years.
