Randall’s workshops are open to students of any level of experience, but are especially designed to help experienced artists further their understanding of the oil painting medium and deepen their insights to their own work. His communication skills and his “hands-on” approach to teaching have garnered him a healthy and wide reputation among former students.

Workshop dates: 9/21/12 - 9/23/12
Location: Sowa Studio
6635 N. Baltimore, #30
Enthusiastic instructor, Brenda Boylan is offering another opportunity to learn the secrets of this intensely expressive and colorful medium in an artistic environment. This 3 day workshop will be held in the beautiful Sowa Studios in the North Portland area. Pastel Punch is designed for all artistic levels who want to learn what it takes to make knock-out pastel paintings. Drawing skills are strongly recommended and photo references as well as still life sets will be used for some of your work. Students can expect to work a variety of exercises stressing the unique qualities of pastel while concentrating on composition, value, and color theory as well as pastel safety, framing and much more. Students will stretch their creativity with the given exercises and are not expected to complete a finished work in class. If the weather allows, we may elect to paint outdoors for the final day.
