What others say about Alain's Workshops

Great personality and excellent teacher. He makes the student feel comfortable and finds good aspects to everyone's work while encouraging them towards the techniques he's teaching. -Linda S.

Alain has exceptional insight when reviewing individual paintings. -Carol B.

I enjoyed Alain's ability to convey his step-by-step approach, laced with a sense of humor to help me loosen up! -Maureen P.

Easy going presentations, great communication, friendly and supportive instructions. -Donna C.

Not only is Alain an incredible artist, but a gifted and generous teacher.  He did a great job of 'working the room' by spending time at each artist's easel with helpful instruction. Alain was able to articulate his thought process as he worked his demo in a detailed, instructive way that I found interesting and quite helpful.  His manner was always upbeat and kind.   I'd be happy to take another workshop with him and hope he comes back.

Thank you for a great workshop in Charleston, I loved it, I think you changed my life, (or art). - Karen G.

Learned more helpful steps in the painting process, from design, thumbnail, and underpainting.  -M.G.

I thought that Alain was very well prepared and not only is he a fabulous artist he is also a gifted teacher.  His commentary during the demo was extremely helpful   I think that doing the portrait can be so difficult and frustrating but he definitely helped to break the frustration and was very able to hone in on the areas that needed strengthening while we did our work.
