Tom teaches a Saturday morning class and an afternoon figure class at the Old Town Triangle Art Center in Chicago.  The classes are generally 10-week sessions that run winter, spring, and fall.  The Art Center is located in the charming, historical neighborhood of Old Town, just a few blocks from the acclaimed Lincoln Park area and the Lake Michigan lakefront. The Center is easily accessible and the street parking is FREE!  The facility offers a large classroom space for painting with an adjoining room equipped with two large sinks.  A full kitchen and bathrooms are just off the classroom.  It is a wonderful atmosphere to teach and to learn!  More information about this class and the 3-day summer workshop can be found by going to
