This class is for painters of all levels, working in oils, pastels or acrylics.
Spend five full days painting en plein air with Tom at the most scenic spots on Madeline Island. During this workshop, you will learn how to identify bad habits, and how to accomplish a system for simplifying your painting process. You will learn about the different stages of a painting from start to finish, and will also discuss the basic elements of successful paintings: Drawing, Shape, Value, Color Temperature, and Edges.
Tom will demonstrate all of his suggestions and shortcuts every day, with a focus on his trademark 6 C's.... Content, Concept,Composition, Craftsmanship, Color, and Center of Interest. and you will receive plenty of individual attention at your easel.
"I will ask each of you; what is it you want to improve on? What do you want to get out of the class? Then I will make individually tailored suggestions for you to implement. There will be tons of information given each day and we will stress the importance of making the process enjoyable and fun. Join me and enjoy this 5 day, on location, plein air painting experience." -Tom
