Few mediums allow you to be as free and spontaneous as pastel. Because it is essentially pure pigment that you apply directly to the paper, you can achieve luminosity and texture in your paintings. Pastel can be beautifully and easily used to render light and color in every subject and style. Elements of design with emphasis on color, value, and composition will be included along with the basic fundamentals of pastel painting. Students do not need prior pastel or drawing experience. All levels are welcome. The class is Wednesday and Thursday July 27th and 28th from 10am-2:30PM.
