Tom Lynch

April 30 - May 4, 2018

Tom starts the first day talking and teaching while doing a few short demos.  Then work individually with everyone.  In the afternoon, we recreate in parts my morning demo, painting on 1/4 sheets:

·         How to "Think Like an Artist" while using the techniques discussed. 
·         Spray bottle techniques
·         Brush stroke techniques  

Next, he walks around and help everyone.

The SECOND DAY he works slowly and concentrate on the building blocks of what makes for a successful painting.  Focusing on those painting lessons (again on 1/4 sheets of paper):

·         How to paint loose
·         Art words before you start
·         Stages to follow
·         Color mixing and application
·         Value studies

Again, a lot of visuals, demos, and individual help. 


The THIRD  DAY, Tom does a morning demo; Each with a lesson and theme (i.e. Sunlight & Shadow, The WOW Factor).  He then answers questions and work individually on whatever the student wants or needs (i.e. you and Tom can play with more techniques or create a finished painting).  Followed by a class critique at the end of the day.


The last two days include a lot of individual help ... If needed! 

Tom’s main theme is ... To have a good time ... Learn a little more about watercolor and ... Improve your skills which will trigger you to want to paint more.
