There are three different course types for Albert Handell’s painting Workshop Programs: three day, four day, and five day, depending on location and available dates.

All workshops are intensively rewarding and meaningful experiences of study and painting with Master Artist Albert Handell. These workshops are geared toward all levels of students and artists who work in pastels, oils, or water media. In the mornings, for your convenience, the studio will open at 9:00 AM. You are urged to come early. The morning demonstrations by Albert will begin promptly at 9:30 AM.

In every workshop, Mr. Handell will demonstrate three of his favorite and most well-known painting techniques:

  1. PURE PASTEL – Painting in pastel from beginning to finish.
  2. MIXED MEDIA PASTEL – Starting with watercolor for under-painting, and finishing with pastel.
  3. OIL PAINTING – Albert begins the painting by establishing transparent oil color washes throughout the entire canvas. He then selects and paints a specific area in detail, which is followed by working from this center of interest and out towards the rest of the painting. These paintings are finished with vibrant use of a palette knife and brush work. TRULY AN EYE-OPENING DEMONSTRATION!!

Demonstrations in subject matter include:

  • THE PAINTING OF TREES and their rhythmical inner workings.
  • THE PAINTING OF A MOUNTAIN STREAM, WATER FALLS, AND MOVING WATER etc.
  • THE SUBJECT FOR THE THIRD DEMONSTRATIONS is open and varies from workshop to workshop.

IN THE AFTERNOONS, YOU WILL PAINT AND ALBERT WILL GIVE INDIVIDUAL, IN-DEPTH HELP TO EACH ARTIST AT THEIR EASEL.

Each workshop will end with an extensive critique of the student and artists’ work, including paintings created during the workshop, and if possible, examples of previous work painted before the workshop. It is recommended that each artist brings 6 to 8 photos, slides, digitals, or original works to these critiques. Each artist will receive specific individual recommendations based on this overview, so you can continue sensibly on your own after the workshop.
