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 – Mentoring – 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.
