About Barry
Barry Sholder grew up in Phoenix, Arizona watching and learning from his father who was an award winning water colorist. He used his experience to become a photo-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 workshops 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.
