Arts Council Presents Visiting Artist Instructor for Thick and Rich Oil Workshop

The Holland Area Arts Council welcomes Randall Scott Hardin for a three-day oil painting workshop May 19th through May 21st from 10:00am to 4:00pm each day.

​Students are invited to paint dynamic oils with Hardin, a visiting artist instructor, in Thick and Rich Oil Painting. Hardin will lead three days of painting in the Arts Council studios and outside en plein air.

Randall paints in a thick and loose style to create dramatic and expressive oil paintings, rich with color and texture. In this workshop, students will learn to do the same. Among other topics, Hardin plans to demonstrate his tricks for careful color combinations that catch light and bring work to life.

Registration costs $375 for the weekend and is open now. Space is limited so those interested should sign up soon. Students will be provided with a supply list when they register.

The workshop will start at the Holland Area Arts Council, located at 150 East 8th Street. Call (616) 396-3278, email or visit for more information and to register.
