This class will introduce students to the basic principles of pastel painting, including the mixing of colors on various textured surfaces, layering, and blending. Composition and value will be explored through still life and landscape photographs. Mindfulness exercises will accentuate the creative process and allow the inner artist to unfold naturally without judgment or fear. This class is suitable for beginners a well as those with previous experience. A supply list will be provided when the class is determined to run.
