Pastel Painting I

Discover the beauty, versatility and uniqueness of pastels in this beginning class.  The most direct of all color media it is surprisingly forgiving.  With pastels one can both draw and paint and the range of color is from soft and pale “pastel” to brilliant and intense.  Be prepared to love this media as others such as Degas, Monet and Toulouse Lautrec have.  You may discover your own “creative genius” in this media that attributes so much importance to the colors of light.  You will learn about landscapes, still life painting and experiment with the principals of the abstract.  You are also going to have fun!


Art materials will be purchased by the student and will cost between $50-$100 depending on the students choice with recommendations and requirements list provided by instructor.  Please here click to download the supply list.
