This is the class you have been waiting for- no bad painting… everyone is successful. If you are one of those folks afraid to make a mistake while painting, or who says, "I have no talent", then this class is for you!

This is not a typical art class; we will be breaking all the rules. There will be no pictures to copy. While focusing on shapes and textures we'll be painting abstractly. Students will experiment painting with their fingers, scrapers, and an assortment of alternative tools.
It doesn't get much easier.

Students will paint several pictures. Wear old clothes and come prepared to get dirty. This is class reserved for those who want to have fun!

Instructor Bio:

Barry Sholder grew up in Phoenix, Arizona watching and learning from his father who was an award winning watercolorist. He used his experience to become a phot
o-retoucher in the early 80's while his talent as a commercial artist led him to open his own business, Douglasville Sign and Art, 1989. As he continued to work as a commercial artist and sign painter, he refined his watercolor skills by studying the techniques of Al Stine, Mel Stabin, Tom Lynch, and Tony Couch. Barry has won
many awards throughout the Southeast for his watercolors. His paintings are in numerous private and corporate collections.

Barry has conducted acrylics and watercolor work shops throughout the Southeast and for private groups for the last 12 years. He has a passion for teaching  watercolor and acrylics that comes across through his entertaining interaction with his students. Barry’s “keeping things simple”, hands-on approach to teaching has been a huge success and the many students who take his classes again and again speaks volumes about his skills as a teacher and motivator. Barry is an encourager and it shows in his students, and in the quality of their work.
