Oil Painting Workshop with Tom Lucas

Oil Painting Workshop with Tom Lucas

The 3-day Tom Lucas oil painting workshop is designed for artists with prior experience and the desire to improve. “No matter how skillful you become,” says Tom, “painting never gets easy. You just keep on raising the bar and expecting more out of yourself.”

Tom has developed his own style of painting Native American life. He helps people understand a little about Native culture. His passion for ancestral tool making has led to him being documented in the PBS films Sheep Eaters: Life in the Mountains and Archers of the Yellowstone. Tom has always had a deep desire to create art of the Western culture. He is inspired by childhood memories of Charlie Russell. Tom has lived on the Wind River Indian Reservation for over 50 years where he has been immersed in Native American culture. He has also lived a life as a cowboy, mountain man, hunter, trapper, and outdoorsman. These attributes are the foundation for his art. With his painting, Tom hopes to preserve a part of the past for future generations. $350 per person. $115 non-refundable deposit. Class limit 10 people.
