Tina Garrett

b. 1974

 

In 2012, after a career as a freelance cartoon illustrator and graphic designer, the Scottsdale Artists’ School awarded Tina the first of two merit scholarships based on a handful of self-taught pastel portraiture, and she began learning how to paint, dedicating herself to the full-time practice of understanding oil painting. 

 

By 2014 Tina earned the first of two Purchase Awards in the 11th and 12th International ARC Salons. Tina’s works, “City Blues” and “String of Pearls” are now part of the Art Renewal Center's renowned permanent collection. Tina’s works have been recognized by The Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America, The International Artist Magazine People & Figures Grand Prize and many others.

 

In 2015 Tina earned a designation of ARC Associate Living Master from the Art Renewal Center and a Master Artist designation from the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society and in 2018 Tina earned a FASO BoldBrush Signature Artist designation. Tina’s works have participated in dozens of exhibitions alongside great works by artists Pamela Wilson, David Laffel, Arantzazu Martinez, Daniel Gerhartz, Nick Alm and others. 

 

Education and Teaching:

In her work as a cartoon illustrator Tina received an Associate of Applied Science Degree from the Colorado Art Institute in 1994. To learn fine art oil painting, Tina has intently studied the Selective Start Method described in Alla Prima by Living Master Artist and Author Richard Schmid, studied in workshops and private lessons with Romel de la Torre, and workshops with Casey Baugh, Aaron Westerberg, Jeremy Lipking, Tim Deibler, Michelle Dunaway, Stanka Kordic, Dennis Perrin, Kathy Anderson and Daniel Keys. 

 

Tina feels strongly the responsibility to impart the knowledge she has learned onto the next generation of artists and is therefore a prolific teacher. Tina teaches over a dozen workshops annually across the country and abroad at both private studios and art centers including the Scottsdale Artists' School, Village Arts of Putney, The Art Students League of Denver,  Bountiful Davis Art Center, San Clemente California Art Supply, Oklahoma Academy of Classical Art, The Hull Art Academy, The Compass Atelier, and internationally in Tuscany and Florence, Italy, at The Florence Studio in 2017, ’18 and ’19. In 2020 Tina has been invited to teach at The Dutch Atelier of Realism in the Netherlands and Vicki Sullivan’s Studio in Australia. Tina is scheduled to teach a workshop in the U.K. at Rosemary & Co. in 2022. Tina teaches four starting methods including Selective Start, Line and Value Block-In, Open Grisaille and Accurate Color Wash. Tina teaches artists how to paint from both life and photos in several workshop formats including The Starting Methods Workshop, The Flesh Tones Workshop, Secrets to Painting Children, Painting From Photos…How To It Right!, and The Figure Outdoors. 

 

In January 2019 Tina produced and published her first instructional oil painting video on USB Flash Drive available at TinaGarrett.com and streaming through Fine Art Studio Online/BoldBrush, Tina’s most recent sponsor. Tina is also sponsored by Rosemary & Co. Brushes, which offers the Tina Garrett Brush Set. Tina is also a proud Gamblin Colors Dedicated Workshop Instructor. 

 

Tina is a proud State Ambassador for the Portrait Society of America helping both Kansas and Western Missouri artists fully benefit from their PSoA membership. Tina is also a proud Cecilia Beaux Forum Mentoring Program Mentor. In addition, since 2017 Tina provides a monthly, paid mentorship to artists in 6 countries for critiques, specific painting or drawing technique education and artistic and career development. Through an application process Tina ensures she is working with artists who are ready to commit to the rigorous and customized mentorship program and thrive as working artists. Tina’s mentees are striving to make their best works, winning awards, teaching and writing on relevant art topics.

 

Tina is a contributing writer to Fine Art Views, the Art Renewal Center ARChive and the Oil Painters of America Blog. Tina publishes a blog and monthly newsletter, and has been featured in editorial coverage by Southwest Art Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur, Poets & Artists Magazine and feature articles in American Art Collector Magazine, International Artist Magazine, Western Art Magazine and Art of the West Magazine, as well as various podcast and television broadcast interviews.
