This one-day workshop will provide plenty of opportunity to explore the versatility of painting with pastels.  Ideal for beginners or artists looking for a refresher. Through demonstrations and exercises participants will become familiar with pastel techniques using hard and soft pastels, and experiment with layering and color/value choices. Various sanded papers will be available for purchase giving artists a chance to compare textural differences of surfaces.

Workshop participants will create small studies before devoting time to working on a painting. Photo references will be proved but feel free to bring photos you would like to paint plenty of individual feedback throughout the workshop, and an ideal way to immerse yourself in pastel painting.

There will be a $15 materials fee for sanded pastel papers and other supplies

I will have pastels for you to use during class but encourage you to bring whatever pastels  you own so I can give you pointers. See the “Materials ” tab for other supplies you should bring to the workshop.
