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.
Any questions regarding supplies, content, or workshop details: see the contacts below, or feel free to contact the artist directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org We hope to see you 2013!
