This class 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. Even students who have been frustrated with this medium in the past find that this introductory course gives them the keys to successful pastels.  Students will use three different surfaces and learn a cost-effective way to make their own pastel surfaces.  Each class includes demonstrations and critiques as students work from still life set ups and photographs.  The goal of the class is to help 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.
