Beginning in January 2019, The Beach Art Center in Indian Rocks Beach will be offering a series of Weekend Workshops taught by nationally known, award-winning instructors from around the country.

Tom Lynch kicks off our new series with “Watercolor Secrets Revealed” – January 25-27

Tom Lynch has written 7 books and hosted several award winning PBS TV Art Series. He was recently listed as one of the nation’s top 20 teachers by a leading Art magazine.

Experience the vast range and flexibility of watercolor in an atmosphere that welcomes the advanced beginner, intermediate and advanced painter.

Add emotion and conviction to your paintings by pushing the limits of color, contrast and light. Tom puts fun into the process of painting along with enthusiasm and new techniques. Daily Demonstrations with detailed explanations of the “hows” and “whys” are followed by individual attention so that each student understands and has an example of the day’s objective and a positive critique session. Tom includes tips on photography, “on-location” painting, matting and salvage techniques for discarded paintings.

We are also offering a new program for Tom’s returning students, where he will review your art work before the workshop, customize plan of action during the workshop, with an extra hour of class time each day during the workshop and a special table area. This way you can resume from where you left off and continue to advance further with a personalized plan.  * If you are a returning student please contact us via email or phone to let us know.
