   Tom has developed a series of workshops that takes the student on a step-by-step process to creating a finished painting. Students will learn the principles of focal point, value change, unity factors and much more while they create a finished work of art. This format is great for those that want to learn in a step –by-step manner. This process will provide a comprehensive amount of information.You will receive a great foundation that then can be applied to your future paintings. Students will be provided with the photo reference; preliminary sketch; and even color photos of other options for you in order to accomplish a beautiful finish painting. In the morning session you will paint with Tom parts of the selected scene. During lunch Tom will have a slideshow for you to watch. In the afternoon you will put all the parts together in a new effort and have a completed painting at the end of the day. The focus of this class is to learn while doing and Tom is a master teacher to help you accomplish that.This class will teach you several different ways to paint the parts and even give you alternate versions of the final painting! TOM will show you how he improves the composition, creates a value study and more.
          There will be a different painting each month.

Tom has a unique format when offering suggestions for improving finished paintings. Students will submit a photo of the painting that they need help with. Tom will print that image on heavyweight paper in order that the student and others can easily view the picture. Tom will discuss the merits of the painting and demonstrate his suggestions for improving it by painting on the color print out. This will allow everyone to see and hear the how and why along with seeing the Before & After. This 'visual critique' will be a learning experience for all to enjoy. This program is great for artists working in any medium. You will never discard a failed painting ever again.

  " Visual Critiques "
                  Sample of a students paintings above and below 
                     with the corrections made by TOM

Tom’s unique approach to analyzing and making suggestions for a finished
work of art is to ‘SHOW YOU’  WHAT, HOW and WHERE ~ to make improvements on your paintings. In these sessions Tom will demonstrate using a color printout of your painting. You will get advice on composition, design, focal point, value, color, theme and much more. You will then see how to make the suggested changes. Viewing the 'before and after' will be a great learning experience not only for your painting but also as you watch the same transformation on the other students paintings. These are not just casual suggestions but rather live demonstrations for your artwork. As we talk about taking your paintings to the next level, this class will have a profound and immediate impact on your artwork. These sessions will be videotaped so that you can watch and learn from them again.
