vermont TJ Cunningham Addison Skies CMYKAward-winning artist and visiting Vermont instructor, TJ Cunningham, will return to the Lowcountry this November to hold a 3-day workshop on landscapes for oil painters. In this studio painting class, held at Art League Academy, Cunningham will help students focus on challenges that tend to impede upon successful landscape paintings.


The two main challenges students will work on are how to create atmosphere and how to sculpt the landscape so that trees seem vertical while the surrounding appears flat.

Each day will begin with a presentation of Cunningham’s working process. The attendees will also receive clear instruction on how to simplify the landscape in an expressive way. Paint quality, value pattern and abstraction will all be discussed as valuable tools when used in landscape painting. “Tim is hands down one of the best painters I have met. Not only are his landscapes realistic, but he is a natural teacher who cares deeply about his students, which is a hard combination to find. I highly recommend taking his workshop” says Judith, a student who took TJ’s previous workshop.

This 3-day workshop will be held Monday – Wednesday, November 12, 13, 14, 2018 from 9:30am to 3:30pm. The price for the workshop is $315 for Art League of Hilton Head members and $350 for non-members.
