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
3 Options:
• Lessons at Armand’s Studio in Warrenton, Virginia
• Lessons at your Northern Virginia Home/Studio
• Lessons somewhere in the USA

For serious artists only!
