About Tonkinson Art Masters
Welcome to the wonderful world of oil painting
Tonkinson Art Masters was founded in 1981 by South African-born artist Leone Tonkinson. Today known as “TAM – School of oil painting” is registered with the Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands since 2008, TAM Art School continues to proudly introduce all levels of artists into the wonderful world of oil painting techniques.
Tonkinson Art Masters is designed with the vision to give artists of all levels a good and solid foundation in the basics of art making.
My goal is to work with you as an artist to develop a tailor-made set of oil painting skills with error-free guidelines and a good and professional foundation in both traditional and contemporary oil painting techniques.
Together we develop art techniques with the aim of creating a unique style and signature for you.

Is This Course For You?

demo lessons and assignments
In the workshops you will receive downloadable image references from the Demo lesson and Assignment catalogue.
Assignments and Demo Lessons are projects designed specifically for artists of all skill levels to master a handful of techniques.
Choose from a large collection of demo lessons to help you master certain techniques you are interested in: e.g. hair, eyes, fruit, crystal, silver, glass, reflections, shadows, color mixing, perspective, etc. to name a few to name a few.
Oil painting requires an understanding of your mediums and their carriers. Demo lessons can also consist of short, quick exercises in between to help you experiment with different mediums, carriers and/or techniques.
Commands are also available to help you practice tone values, gaining a better understanding of the fundamentals of art making.
Leone has assignments for every subject in your oil painting workshops. If you have your own drawings, subjects and themes, we support you with that too. The course is completely flexible in that regard.
Our goal is to provide you with the necessary knowledge and know-how, so that you can be independent and independent. Assignments are there when you need them, along with unlimited personal support from Leone.
