​Tom’s energetic teaching style and his passion for painting combine to create a workshop experience that is enjoyable and informative.  Any artist looking to break free of a careful, timid painting process will find Tom's direct and representational approach very inspirational.  Utilizing his ability to clearly explain visual concepts, Tom will share his ​approach and methods for painting bold and interpretive watercolors.  Within this process, students will learn how to create stronger, more effective visual statements.  Each morning will begin with a discussion covering various topics and culminating in a demonstration that allows participants to see how Tom approaches a work from start to finish. Subject matter may include landscapes, street scenes with people and the clothed figure. Ample opportunity is provided for everyone to paint with individual direction/guidance a priority.  Each day will end with a class critique to afford students the opportunity to learn from the works of others.  Tom welcomes all painters regardless of experience.
