This one day class will demystify color theory as it applies to image-making.
We will talk about primary, secondary and tertiary colors
and how to mix them from a simple palette for a more personal take on color.
We will learn about how light shadow and atmosphere affect color relationships in a painting.
Students will also learn how to use color to create mood and drama
and how to create and use clean color choices instead of muddy dull mixes.

This one day class will introduce the student to basic perspective theory as it applies to image-making.
All images including landscapes, portraits and still life make use of perspective.
It is a necessary tool for anyone interested in representational image-making.
We will simplify the process using basic shapes and forms that can later be practiced with more complex objects.  
All levels of students are welcome.


Limited enrollment

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


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!
