I’ll be teaching a soft pastel workshop at View in Old Forge, New York on Monday, July 1, from 3-6 in the afternoon. Please contact View in Old Forge for details, coming soon.
Description: This class will give the beginner or intermediate pastel artist a broad overview of materials and techniques, including the use of wet and dry techniques. The class will feature demonstrations and participants will be provided with the materials to create pastel studies during class, with one-on-one assistance. Discussion will include pastels as a plein air medium, the dynamics of composition, and, time permitting, a segment on how to frame pastels. Participants should bring a choice of reference photos to work from, and an easel (stand up or a simple tabletop easel). Students are welcome to bring their own pastels and supplies.
