Color Your World with Oil Sticks
Level: All
All Materials Provided

We will focus on the process of painting with the instructor’s personal line of oil sticks. Paul will demonstrate a number of techniques you can use with this versatile and expressive medium. Color theory, composition and basic painting ideas will be discussed. Paul will work individually with students as they paint from his digital images or their own. Using oil sticks is both fun and challenging. All materials provided.








Paul deMarrais, 70, has had a long and varied career in art. For many years he focused on pastel painting ‘en plein air’, sitting out in the Tennessee landscape he loves. In the past seven years, he’s been perfecting his own line of oil sticks, oil paint in a stick form. The last several years he has been painting with this new medium and showing other artists how to use his oil sticks in their own work. A popular workshop instructor, Paul has taught many workshops around the Southeast and has enjoyed working with art teachers through the Tenn. Art Educator’s Association. He makes his home in Kingsport, Tenn. with his wife Pam and assorted friendly cats and dogs!
