Paint beautiful paintings in pastel. Explore color theory composition and the techniques of pastel drawing and painting. Students will be able to see step-by-step demonstrations of a pastel painting as well as receive individual critiques. This class is appropriate for students of all levels. Students will work from life and reference materials and have the opportunity to paint plein aire at nearby locations (weather permitting). Approaches discussed will include realistic, impressionistic, and abstract. Materials will be discussed during the first class. Please bring a sheet of gray pastel paper (MiTienes or Strathmore ), a kneadable eraser, vine charcoal, and a white pastel to the first class.
