Instructor: Randy Hale

Class Description

Have you always wanted to take a watercolor class, but you’re not sure about which supplies to buy? Do you just need a little BOOST to get you going?  This class is just for YOU!  All you have to do is SHOW UPAll the supplies are provided!

This is an informal orientation class to get you the confidence you need to sign up for other watercolor classes! Randy will be discussing:

  • the type of supplies that are used in watercolor,
  • good places to purchase (the right kind of) supplies,
  • explanations about what each material or tool will accomplish – and how they’re supposed to be used.
  • Randy will walk everyone thru the correct way to set up whatever palette you end up purchasing,
  • and he will have everyone painting basic exercises to facilitate brush-handling – which will get you comfortable with the medium.


About the Instructor
Randy Hale did undergraduate work in studio design at Principia College. He had the privilege of being taught watercolor in that tradition of painting now known as the California school of watercolor by one of its original members – James Green. Randy went on to earn a graduate degree in Business from the University of Denver. But it was his immersion in studies at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA where he crafted a solid foundation in design and composition. Art Center propelled him into a long and successful career in design, project management, and sales. Pitching creative concepts provided a strong foundation in working successfully with people. Once Randy moved back to Colorado his involvement with numerous art groups led to his serving on several boards, organizing shows both locally and nationally, jurying art exhibitions and providing entertaining painting demonstration programs throughout the country. But Randy’s true passion has proved to be sharing his knowledge as a teacher and workshop instructor. His PAINTED PALETTE TOURS offers students a chance to enjoy the excitement of travel with fellow painters, discovering exotic locations and capturing expressive paintings that provide further enrichment of those travel experiences. His classes and workshops are popular, fill quickly and generate wait-lists with painters eager to join.
