This classroom–based workshop is for beginners and others who want to explore this flexible and forgiving medium. Students will be introduced to a variety of pastels, painting surfaces and pastel techniques as well as use three different surfaces and learn a cost-effective way to make their own pastel surfaces. Demonstrations and critiques are part of this lively workshop. Students will work from still life set ups and photographs and the workshop will cover techniques for using photos and improving compositions, while helping students develop their unique viewpoints and creative approaches to the pastel medium.

Students will supply their own pastels and Canson paper, based on instructor’s supply list. Instructor will supply additional pastels and surfaces for students to use.

Material fee is $10, payable to instructor.
