Tony Allain 'Chasing the Light' workshop Thursday and Friday, October 18-19, 2018, in Rockville.MD


The Maryland Pastel Society is sponsoring a 2-day indoor “Chasing the Light” pastel workshop with Tony Allain, Thursday and Friday, October 18-19, 2018. This workshop is for those who wish to speed up and become less tight in their work. Students will learn how to simplify their approach and experiment ways to introduce color and light into their work - to achieve exciting, impressionistic paintings.

Tony lives in Cornwall and travels extensively teaching workshops throughout the US and Europe.

He is a prolific painter and much sought after workshop instructor, generous with information and individual help. Tony is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, a Master’s Circle Member of IAPS, as well as a member of the Pastel Society UK, and a Master of The Pastel Artists of New Zealand. He has gained many awards in juried competitions and exhibitions and his paintings are in private and corporate collections around the world. (See
