Testimonials

  • Stephanie F

    The class was great. Loved the demonstration and the individual help. I would never have thought to use some of those colors but they really worked.

  • Andrea B

    Mandar’s landscape painting class was so much fun! His approach to creating a pastel landscape is loose and use of color is rich and dream like. I would recommend his classes to my artistic friends. For an enjoyable experience take a pastel class with Mandar!

  • Miriam

    I like the demonstration, the fact that you make suggestions & show ways to make the painting more interesting, e.g. use colors that bring more interest to the work.

  • Kim Ross

    Mandar is a wonderful teacher. He simplified the process. His demonstration was very clear and made it look like something I could do. I never used the pastels before and ended up enjoying them very much. Mandar was extremely encouraging. He helped me choose what to paint, gave me suggestions all through the process when I asked, and was very available ( not just focusing on a few people).

  • Aaron B.

    Mandar started with an instructional demo, covering the basic techniques. The class was small, so there was plenty of one-on-one help for those that wanted it. It was a great class to do with my partner. The class was casual and everyone was friendly and had fun together.

  • Isabel N.

    I like the way how he mixes two techniques, pastel and acrylic. It was a fun and great class. He is a wonderful artist.

  • Dave

  • Glenna B

    I have been attending Mandar’s art class at Cardinal Point. I am a new student, and I am learning the “process” of pastel art creation. It is amazing to me, and I am finding great joy in his art.

  • Amy

    Mr. Mandar’s pastel technique is fun and easy to learn. He is a good teacher and fine artist.

    Mandar has been teaching a pastel class at Cardinal Point for about 3 months and it has been very successful. We al enjoy his demonstrations and instructions.

  • Patricia Lamborn

    I thoroughly enjoyed Mandar’s workshop- I have admired his art for a few years now and I am thankful that he shared his approach and skills so generously with us in a medium I love too- pastel! Looking forward to more opportunities to learn with Mandar!!

  • Miriam Infinger

    Mandar is an outstanding instructor. Both his demonstration and his hands-on approach in giving advice, encouragement and praise make the workshop a pure joy. The class is small enough to allow for individual one-one opportunities. I cannot wait for the next one.

  • Kerry Wochinski

    I took a class with Mandar last weekend and had a revelation about color palette. I have been painting for years, mostly realism. Mandar’s explanation of using color value (rather than hue) in painting really opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. What fun! I believe I have found my new favorite medium!

  • Miriam Infinger

    As an artist, I have worked primarily with acrylics and encaustic. I took Mandar’s pastel workshop last Fall which was my first experience using pastels. Mandar had the classroom set up so we could begin immediately. He gave a brief lecture and demonstrated the process. As we were working on our own pieces, Mandar circulated throughout the room offering helpful suggestions and encouragement. My first pastel painting was a success thanks to Mandar. I look forward to having the opportunity of tak(show more)

    He has a very easy-going manner and was very encouraging. We were able to turn out a finished project at the end of a 2 hours session. We plan to return to take more classes with Mandar.
