Raleigh Workshop Just Announced!

Hi everybody,

Some good news!
I have arranged for an unexpected and rather unique additional workshop for this year in Raleigh NC, a beautiful area of the country.

This special workshop will be an Indoor Painting Workshop (it’s extremely hot in Raleigh in August). This workshop is unique it will have an emphasis on both oils and pastels:  for the morning  demonstrations (4) will be equal- 2 for pastel and 2 for oils, with painting in the studio every afternoon, with help at the easel.

Members of the workshop can paint in the medium(s) of their choice.

I received this newsletter from Nicole’s Studio (below) 4 days ago, and already 6 aspiring artists have signed up. I expect the workshop to be SOLD OUT very soon.

If you are interested in joining us, please do not hesitate to sign up at this time. I look forward to working with you again.

Handell – Demo in w/c underpainting then pastel


Nicole’s Studio is thrilled to announce an August workshop with award winning and Internationally renowned artist Albert Handell. Albert Handell has been featured in over thirty one-man exhibits, received over seventy prizes & awards for his works and has exhibited all over the US. He also has works in the permanent collections of numerous organizations across the country.

Albert has also published five books on his painting and techniques and has been written up in prestigious magazines and journals including Pastel Journal, Southwest Art, Artist Magazine and American Artist. He is an Oil Painter of America Master (OPAM) .

This workshop will feature a series of morning demonstrations for the first 4 days with Albert that will:

  • Show you what to emphasize and what to omit in order to make a strong design statement while working sensibly towards a finish.
  • Let you see how Albert perfects his outdoor studies and brings paintings to life from photographs of your landscapes and/or still lifes.
  • How to use techniques in different mediums to achieve the results you want, including two valuable techniques rarely demonstrated in workshops: glazing and scumbling as well as feathering.
  • Help you see beautiful landscape paintings brought to life in two different mediums: oil and pastel. Students can paint in ANY medium they choose, but Albert will demo twice each in oil and pastel.

Monday through Thursday Albert will demonstrate a complete work from 9:30 – 12:30. After a short lunch break students will paint in the medium of their choice from 1:30 – 4:30 with Albert providing individual attention at the easel.

On Friday the entire morning will be devoted to critiques and students can bring 6-8 works they have completed previously to receive feedback and critique. Friday afternoon will be spent completing all the works you started in class with your newfound knowledge and more help at the easel. For more information on Albert and to view some articles featuring him in national art publications, check out his blog:
