The Keys to Better Painting
Studio Painting in Oils and Acrylics

This workshop will focus on key solutions to issues many artists struggle with:
mixing clean color, seeing light and dark values correctly,
and designing interesting compositions.
Armand will guide each student individually to improve their work no matter what their painting experience.
This workshop is open to both Oil and Acrylic painters and all levels of ability are welcome.
An intense, but fun and non-competitive environment in a beautiful workshop venue.

***Most of your equipment & supplies questions will be answered on Armand’s Materials List.

Where to Stay in Highlands


Outdoor Workshops
Armand teaches how to simplify and organize the painting process to work within the fleeting time constraints of the roving sun.
He instructs how to “organize nature” and capture light and atmosphere in a painterly fashion.
Daily demos — usually between 12 pm – 1 pm … during the most challenging time of the day, leaving the better hours of light for the students to paint.

Studio Workshops
Students paint from small sketches or photos, creating larger paintings alla prima—finishing their paintings in one sitting.
More seasoned painters will be taught how to solve advanced problems and perfect their technique.

Private Lessons – In Person or Zoom 
Armand will occasionally teach private lessons to serious students.
$75 per hour 
Students must commit to 4 consecutive, weekly lessons in order to be considered.
Instruction will take place at the students’ home, studio or online by Zoom.
