Colorado Artist and acclaimed Landscape Painter Tom Lockhart will be
conducting a combination Plein-Air and Studio workshop. In the
Tradition of the Old Masters, Tom’s approach is to gather valuable
information while outdoors (En-Plein-Air), and put together a series of
outdoor sketches to be used to finalize a studio painting. Tom instructs
as well as paints for the galleries in a variety of Mediums. He is
primarily known for his oils but has won awards and paints as often as
he can in his other mediums of choice, Watercolors and Pastels.
Tom will demonstrate to
the class, his approach to painting. He will give each student as much
personal attention as possible. This will be informative and fun, “We
are here to enjoy the outdoors, the ability to paint from life and have
a good time doing so. Hopefully each student with go away with a bit
more knowledge to apply to their own personal paintings
you for a most beneficial workshop and for sharing your knowledge with
us. I came away with the information I needed to improve my composition
and color values. I got so much out of just watching and listening to
your demonstrations and discussions. You answered my questions on the
spot verbally and visually, and more than most art workshops I have
attended. You took the time to visit with everyone in our class while
painting on location. Your critique was well received and I know I came
away with a better composition”.

took Tom's three-day watercolor workshop this summer in Novice, Texas,
and had a wonderful and productive time. We learned about color,
composition, and technique, to name a few of the areas of concentration.
Tom was very entertaining and responsive to our interests and our
questions. I hope I'll have another opportunity to take a class from him
in the future. Thank you, Tom. It was great fun!

workshop was great fun, but he also stressed basics of design that all
of us need in planning our paintings. He was extremely helpful in
finding ways each of us could improve our work, so we left with a
feeling of days well-spent.
