Want to spend time developing your oil painting skills and taking yourself to new levels? There’s just something more vibrant and deeper in the colors and the paintings you do in oil. Whether you already paint in oils or always wanted to experiment in oils, come check this out. Tyler is going to offer classes two days a month at the Guild so over the course of a year, you can really develop your skills.

Tyler Thornton Art currently resides in Topeka. Tyler works as a self-taught artist. His skills in painting portray a wide range of disciplines. He works mostly in oil paints, experimenting with both molding and crackle paste to create depth and extreme layers. Tyler hopes to inspire others with the depth, thought, and emotion that goes into each of his pieces.
