Pastel and oil painter Alain Picard joined us for the first time in April 2019 for a wonderful workshop on landscapes and portraits. Here’s what his student’s had to say;

Such a pleasant person to learn from and be around. Very giving of his time, energy, and talent. Lots of individual attention for all levels. He worked very hard all week and was such fun to be with all that time. I am so glad that I attended and it helped all aspects of my art.”

I thought Alain was a fantastic instructor who was able to both instruct the whole group as well as offer individualized and personalize instruction.”

Alain is a wonderful teacher. He gave clear & interesting examples & instructions & answered all our questions. His Demos were great! He was pleasant & very helpful always. I hope he returns to give more workshops in future. Especially plein air & portraits.”

Pastels were new to me, and I feel that I have a very good foundation for continuing my exploration of this medium. The workshop also highlighted areas that I need to work on for all art mediums (watercolor, oil, and pastel), and I received much individual attention in these areas. I never felt ‘left behind’. Alain expanded all of us wonderfully.”
