Participants are responsible for bringing their own supplies.


About Barry Thomas:

Barry Thomas is an impressionist artist based in the Little Rock, Arkansas area. Best noted for his canvases filled with light, energy, and rich color, he often seeks to illustrate the beauty found in nature as well as everyday life. “The paintings I create come from my family, my love of nature, and my deeply spiritual heart and bones,” Barry has said. With its emphasis on vibrant colors and scenery, his work is created using only colors from Monet’s palette. For the past three decades, Barry has excluded the use of browns and blacks from all his paintings, simply obtaining the appearance of them by combining several other colors. A former Fayetteville resident, Barry attended the University of Arkansas and played football for Coach Lou Holtz. Barry moved from linebacker to artist and thus his creative career began.

Barry is a Fine Arts graduate from The Art Center College of Design in California and the University of Arkansas, becoming an acclaimed illustrator and commercial artist who was later chosen for the Society of Illustration Hallmark Award. As time passed, Barry discovered his love for painting and studied under the guidance of artists such as Howard Terpning, Gary Carter, and William Reece. From there he honed his unique skills of capturing the beauty of everyday life in a vivid and energizing style. Since then his artwork has appeared in galleries across the United States from New Mexico to Illinois and Florida.
