Bob Tompkins Studio

...A Southern artist with an old world style

Class Info


My classes meet on Monday or Tuesday, morning or night. Night classes meet from 6:30 till 9:00 and the morning classes meet from 9:00 till 11:30. Each class is 2 ½ hour in duration. Each session is 4 classes and the session cost 90.00. Learning to paint is an on going process. I have a few students who have been there for 17 or 18 years and many who have been there anywhere from 4 years to 15 years. We are one big happy family.

We paint and learn from an academic process where we set up a still-life with one directional light source. I supply a 5 foot section of table ( a cubical ) with a light source, chairs and a TV tray. I start a new student by doing a demonstration that employs the 3 things that I teach.: value, intensity and texture.

I also have a supply list that includes everything that you will need to start your painting career. This usually cost between $300.00 and $400.00 and can be purchased from a wholesale catalog.
