THE PIEDMONT PASTEL SOCIETY is proud to present Jen Evenhus for a Pastel Demo on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 10:30-12:30 p.m.
Jennifer is a Master Pastelist in the Pastel Society of America, an International Assoc. of Pastel Societies Master Circle member, a Distinquished Pastelist in the Northwest Pastel Society, and a signature member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast
Jen, a nationally recognized award-winning artist, is naturally drawn to patterns, shapes, and movement found in nature, cityscapes, interiors, figures and everyday objects, translating those into unique works of art. Jen captures their essence with simplification and exaggeration in contemporary impressionist and abstract paintings.
The process, or journey, of painting with the exploration, risks, failures and triumphs is her impetus in providing the viewer with emotions and memories that her contemporary paintings evoke. Jen’s work is recognized by its dynamic composition, bold use of color, and confident application of pastel or oil.

Diana Coidan is not only an award winning pastel artist, but is also a fabulous instructor who can teach to students of any level. Diana’s “specialty” as an artist are clouds, water, boats and animal scenes.
Diana will begin with demonstrations of the technique and guide students on their individual paintings from start to finish. If you do have an old acrylic painting lying around that needs a little more spark and attention, please bring that with you. Come discover who you are as an artist and let Diana help guide you to your pathway of expression pastels. One of the best ways to find your style is to explore new materials and techniques, and if you have never tried pastels, you may find this an exciting stop on your painting journey that advances your entire artistic process. This workshop will be fun for participants at all levels except for very Beginner painters.
Diana will supply 9×12 Uart Pastel Paper. Please bring larger than 9×12 foam board to put under the paper and an 8×10 canvas or larger.
May 22 & 23, 2018
The Florence Thomas Art School
West Jefferson, NC
This 2-day plein air / studio workshop is for the intermediate pastel artist who would like to create studio work that has the light and feel of a plein air piece. The mornings will be spent in the field doing value sketches and quick color studies. In the afternoon we will return to the studio to create a larger studio painting. By relying on the sketches done in the field and not a photograph, the studio paintings will be more simplified and light filled.
To register please contact the Florence Thomas Art School — www.florenceartschool.org 336-846-3827
Questions?? Feel free to contact me — firstname.lastname@example.org
This special opportunity is being sponsored by the Appalachian Pastel Society in conjunction with the APS 2018 Juried Member Show.

In this workshop, learn to create the illusion of crashing waves in pastel. Go beyond the flat blues of photographs and enliven your seascapes with the colors in your memory. We’ll start with simple, abstracted underpaintings to build a strong foundation. Learn to crop photos for effective compositions, look at water’s reflective qualities and explore how light, motion and what lies beneath all affect what we see, and what we paint. We’ll explore special techniques that make water shimmer, flow and crash.

The focus is on the foundations of successful representational art, including composition, values, color, and drawing and will include specific exercises such as creating notans, small color studies, and underpainting techniques, Jacob will take you through the process of producing landscape paintings in pastel. Each day will include at least one demo, followed by ample time for students to paint with assistance from Jacob at their easels.
