Thomas Kinkade Studios
Thom The Mentor
Throughout his career, Thomas Kinkade developed and trained artists with the intent of continuing his legacy of Sharing the Light™. He was involved in nurturing and sharing his passion for art with colleagues and the younger generations of artists in an effort to further perfect and nurture his techniques and styles and vision. This artistic mentorship of great artists passing the flame of knowledge and sharing skills is an age old tradition.
The Atelier System
Throughout time, the atelier system was foundational to the development of western art. Atelier, meaning an artists studio for training in fine art, is a long-standing commonplace throughout the world. Leonardo da Vinci himself apprenticed under Andrea del Verrocchio and belonged to the Verrocchio Studio.
The Thomas Kinkade Studios
In this tradition of Master artists passing on their experiences, Thomas Kinkade loved to share his passion of art with a cadre of artists and to train them in his creative process. Thom had great excitement to exchange ideas about art with his atelier and actively trained and recruited this talented group. This collaborative environment allowed Thom to teach his methods with other artists and impart to them the techniques, concepts and vision that he was so well known and loved for.
The Thomas Kinkade Studio continues in the path that Thom himself started and developed. Thomas Kinkade Studio Artists paint in the true Thomas Kinkade style with great attention to detail, a love of light and an overwhelming appreciation of the way a picture can tell a beautiful story. Carrying on the model Thom himself had been driven to develop, Thomas Kinkade Studios carries on the Kinkadian tradition to create art that will stand the test of time and be treasured for the ages.
