CREATIVE USE OF SOFT PASTEL WORKSHOP
Sat., September 12, 2015
$85 (includes some supplies and lunch prepared by Barbara!)
Soft pastel workshop for beginners or experienced pastellists. Beginners will work from
a still-life set-up. More experienced may choose to do that or bring a landscape photo (one
that you have taken yourself) to work from. The emphasis for this class will be using either dark-toned papers (black) or textured surfaces.
Barbara will demonstrate using clear gesso to prepare an exciting textured surface. You may choose to use that surface (already prepared
for you) or a dark-toned paper to experiment with. You will have time to complete a small piece
(approx. 10" x 12").
Class size is limited to four people so you will receive lots of personal instruction. Barbara will
demonstrate using pastels, discuss famous pastel artists, composition, color usage and much more!
