I have been asked by numerous people to teach a weekly pastel class. I have now decided to do so.
When: Thursday mornings, August 1 – September 26
(except for Thursday, September 12)
Time: 9:30 am – 12:00 noon
Where: College Place United Methodist Church
Cost: $195 for the 8 week session
To register email me at email@example.com
This class will have a minimum of 6 students and a maximum of 10 students. Registration is on a first come basis. Several people have already indicated they would like to attend, so don’t hesitate to contact me.
When you register I will let you know what type of supplies you will need for this first session.
Beginner and experienced artists are welcome in this class. We will start with the basics and work our way up. Even if you are experienced it never hurts to review the basics, and I will certainly work with you on the level you are currently at. There will be some work from life using simple still life set ups, and some landscape work using photographs.
In this first session we will cover:
How to set up your pastels to give you a better understanding of color harmony and value relationships.
Proportion and basic drawing.
Composition and what makes a good painting.
Under painting — to use or not to use.
I have been working in pastel and been a professional artist for about 30 years, and look forward to sharing with you some of what I have learned during that time.
