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.
