Born in Emmetsburg, Iowa in 1945, Randy Sprout began his art career in 1964 at the University of Iowa, printmaking and studying with Mauricio Lasansky and Dr. John Schultz. He graduated with a BA in fine arts from the University of Iowa in 1968   Army service in Korea interrupted his art for two years, after which he studied with Robert Heinecken, Jan Stussy, Ray Brown, Sam Amato, Richard Diebenkorn and Stanton MacDonald-Wright, in the UCLA Graduate School of Fine Arts. He was awarded an MA in 1972 and an MFA at UCLA in 1973. He had many shows during that time, including a One Man show at the Santa Barbara Art Museum.  He also worked for Los Angeles County Museum of Art, with Ben Johnson, and got to restore many priceless prints for the Norton Simon Museum.


Working closely with Jan Stussy and Stanton McDonald-Wright, he began painting and his drawings began to get larger and better.  In 1973, he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to restore some Goya steel-faced etchings at the Prado, in Lisbon.  Then Ruth Weisberg of the USC Department of Art reached out to him, and he worked there as an Associate Instructor in printmaking for 2 years.  After that, he taught painting and printmaking for 4 years at the UCLA Art Extension then taught painting, printmaking and drawing at Pierce College. He coauthored the book “Innovative Printmaking” 1977 Crown Publishers, New York. In 2004 he gave a sold out lecture to Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angles with a re-creation of Synchrome Kineidoscope performance a machine he helped work on with Stanton MacDonald-Wright in early 1970.


He is a member of California Art Club, Southern California Plein Air Painters Association, Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, and on the Board of Directors for the California Art League.
