Hello and Welcome!
My name is Paul deMarrais. I am a pastel artist, teacher and oil painter. I manufacture my own line of oil sticks, pastels and crayons. I've been painting for over thirty five years. It has been a long journey and I am eager to share my discoveries with you! On this site you will find many articles that may interest you. Feel me to contact me and ask me any questions you might have. As an art instructor, I am dedicated to passing on what knowledge I have gained over the years. I have had invaluable help from so many people in my art career. I realize that both in art and in life, we never go it alone. Connecting and sharing with others is the true route to success.
I would love to meet you at one of my workshops. My classes are small and casual. My goal is to help each artist move ahead in their journey, knowledge and skills. Sometimes one concept can be a key to unlock a door to real progress for an artist. That is the challenge and excitement of teaching for me. We work hard at the workshops but we always have a good time in the process!!
