Introduction to Pastels | February 18
Are you curious about painting with soft pastels? If so, the upcoming Introduction to Soft Pastels Workshop is for you.
Soft pastels have been used by artists throughout the ages. The old masters often used them to create studies in addition to a final piece of art. Today, contemporary artists continue to be enamored with the medium given the vibrancy of the colors and ease of application (that can result in a finished piece in one session).
This one-day workshop will start with a discussion about and demonstration of the medium. We'll touch on a bit of history and a bit of practical advice on how to use soft pastels (e.g., techniques, materials). Then the real fun begins, as workshop participants dive into creating their own paintings using a reference photo (bring your own or use one from the instructor's collection). The day will end with a friendly critique and reflections on lessons learned from the day.
Please note that pastels will be supplied for those who do not have their own.
