This class introduces students to the basic principles of pastel landscape drawing, including the mixing of colors on various textured surfaces, layering, and blending. Composition and value will be explored through landscape photographs. Mindfulness exercises will accentuate the creative process and allow the inner artist to unfold naturally, without judgement or fear. This class is for beginners as well as those with experience. A supply list will be provided. Instructor Christopher Reed graduated from Bowdoin College with a BA in Visual Arts. He is a painter, exhibitor, and art teacher inspired by the synthesis of nature, the evolving play of light, and each artist's unique expression of feelings and interpretation.
