Albert Handell's Bio:

Albert Handell was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1937. At an early age, a favorite activity of his was drawing with chalks on the city streets. He began formal studies of drawing and anatomy at the age of sixteen. In 1954, he enrolled at the Art Students League of New York City to study drawing and anatomy with the late Louis Priscilla and the late Robert Ward Johnson, and later studied painting for two years with Frank Mason. From 1961 to 1965, Mr. Handell lived and traveled in Europe. In Paris, he painted independently in his own studio, working from the model at L'Ecole de la Grande Ghaumiere  and at Louvre, copying the old masters.

Supply List:

For Pastel Artist:

If you are painting in pastel, bring all the pastels that you have and the pastel papers that you like to paint on – plus a few lightweight drawing boards i.e., made of foam core or gator board or any lightweight material. Albert paints  with U-ART sanded pastel papers 500 grit. The sanded paper comes in mounted boards 18x24", 16x20", 12x16", and as small as 9 x 12″. 

If you wish to work on other pastel papers, be sure to bring them to the workshop. If you are an experienced pastelist, bring the pastels you already have.

For Oil Painter:

For those who wish to paint in oil, bring what you paint with.
