Spend a relaxing day learning a different art technique in my in home studio.
Open to any level. This is a small group so there is lots of individual attention.
Soft pastels are a very imediate medium, meaning that you don't have to use any tools , dilutients or mixing pallet to create your painting. It's just your pastels and your paper and you. Pastels can be tight and controlled to loose and whimsical. I use both ways depending on my mood and the subject matter.
All materials are provided.
If you have any questions you can e-mail me at or call at 743-6201.
Introduction - 10:00-3:00 - $90
In this workshop I will show you how to create a pastel painting on traditional pastel paper, using a variety of techniques. To become familiar with the medium we’ll do two small, simple still life paintings; one not blended and one blended.
Next we will prepare our own support using a fine pumice gel medium and bristle brushes to create a textured background for a loose colorful pastel painting.
There will be soup for lunch but you can bring your own if you like. Tea and coffee available all day.
