The perfect way to start the weekend… Loosen up and have fun with pastels! Using expressive marks and color we will paint vibrant landscapes and still life. The essentials of pastel painting will be covered including approaches and methods of application, pastels from hard to soft, surface possibilities, color theory and under painting. Demos, problem solving, and lots of individual instruction are included. This class is appropriate for both beginners in pastel and those who are experienced with the medium. Just bring whatever pastels you may have and explore the possibilities of this versatile medium!
