Instructors > Tina Garrett
Tina Garrett (b. 1974) has studied intently and been heavily influenced by the Selective Start Method described in Alla Prima by Living Master Artist and Author Richard Schmid. Tina subsequently studied in workshops offered by Richard’s students whenever possible, including Romel de la Torre, Casey Baugh, Aaron Westerberg, Kathy Anderson, Jeremy Lipking, Tim Deibler, Michelle Dunaway and Stanka Kordic.
Tina’s philosophy on art can be summarized as such: "The best works reflect the marriage of concept and skill, presented by an authentic voice. True artists hold no jealousy, and love great work even if they did not create it themselves. Artists do not own the information that we have been taught, and it is our responsibility to pass it on, as there is never enough great art."
In the course of her serious pursuit of fine arts mastery, Tina has created a growing family of private collectors and commissioned clients in the U.S., U.K., Netherlands, and Mexico.
Tina is one of few master painters teaching the Selective Start Method and can be found painting and teaching private lessons at her Lee’s Summit, Missouri studio. She also teaches workshops and mentors artists across the U.S., U.K and abroad at these and other venues: The Scottsdale Artists’ School, Denver Art Students League, Village Arts of Putney, The Florence Studio, Oklahoma Academy of Classical Art and Crooked Tree Art Center.
Tina is proud to accept a Master Artist designation through the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society Signature Member Guild and an ARC Associate Living Master designation by the Art Renewal Center. Tina is a proud Gamblin Dedicated Workshop Artist and is sponsored by FASO/BoldBrush and Rosemary & Co. Brushes. Tina is a contributing writer to the Art Renewal Center ARChives and Fine Art Studio Online FineArtViews.
