Tony Clarke is teaching the Abstract Painting class.
From an early age Tony has had a passion for art. When in his early teens his work was appreciated and purchased by local art lovers. He was a member of the Howick Art Group at 15 years of age.
Tony is a self taught artist, early influences were Raymond Ching, Robert Bateman, and Andrew Wyeth. A trip to Wyoming in early 2000 to attend a Robert Bateman seminar fueled a desire to start a local art school and share what has been learned over 30years of painting.
Starting with classes run at the Uxbridge Centre in Howick, Tony soon established his own art school which has been running successfully ever since.
Returning to America in 2001 Tony was accepted by a prominent gallery in Jackson Hole Wyoming, the Wilcox Gallery who currently represent him in the USA.
