Join Albert Handell in this exciting 5 day indoor/outdoor painting workshop. In the morning demonstration you will see and learn what to select and emphasize and what to play down or even take out of your paintings in order to make a strong design statement, and work sensibly towards finish. It will be an opportunity to see how a Master Artist works in a studio setting and on location.


You can sign up at this time with a $125 non-refundable tuition deposit (or, if you prefer, the full payment of $725) by contacting The Albert Handell Studio/Office. The preferred method of payment is with credit card. All major credit cards are accepted.

There are four daily morning demonstrations, from 9:30 AM to noon; all demos are from start to finish. 3 demos are in the studio – The 4th is on location:

  • Monday demo is mixed media pastel (watercolor under painting, finishing with pastel).
  • Tuesday demo is in oils. This oil demo is from beginning to finish. It also takes in glazing and scumbling, two valuable techniques, rarely demonstrated in workshops, and closely relates to the technique of “feathering” in pastels.
