Course description: 

If you are new to Pastels, this class is for YOU!

This day-long workshop will take you on a journey beginning with learning all about pastels’ unique properties through the completion of your first painting.

Many people believe that Art talent is something you are born with, but Art is something you can learn.  The beauty of pastels is that you cannot make a mistake!  Unwanted marks can be simply brushed off and new marks created. This class is designed to develop your comfort level while learning about different types of pastels and papers.  You will learn how to begin a painting by selecting an image, setting up your painting, making different types of marks, and other techniques designed to help you feel confident and excited to try more!

About the Instructor:

Color has been my inspiration since I was a very young child. When I received my first box of Crayola Crayons, I couldn’t stop staring at the intense colors. Maybe I could be an Elementary teacher so I could color?

When I shopped as an adult, I was drawn like a sailor to the sirens, to any bright or scrumptious color. The object became secondary to the color. Even when all of my friends were decorating with neutrals, I gravitated toward primary colors.

Now that I am retired and free to live and express myself in any manner I please, I return to color. Bright beautiful colors! Since Pastels are the most vibrant of all mediums it is not surprising that I fell in love! When I first walked into a Pastel store and saw an array of 500 beautiful sticks of colors, I was hooked!

I have formally studied art in Arizona over the past four years, but have taken workshops in all mediums my entire life.

Art is an expression of my soul that brings me endless happiness.

May it bring you as much joy as it brings me!
