Service Description

This course will explore the forgiving and simple medium of soft pastels. I will be teaching step-by-step lessons, so have your reference at hand to follow along with me. References will be provided and will vary in subject matter and style. This class is designed for a painting to be finished in two consecutive lessons. Please have your workspace all setup directly in front of your computer. All your supplies should be accessible to use for the lessons. I prefer you work on a smaller scale; 8x10 is and excellent size to accomplish in a two week period. Through this impressionistic course, you will learn the importance of colors and tones, while improving your style and approach to mark making in this forgiving medium. We will try the use an alcohol underpainting in one of our paintings. Master the art of layering our pastels to achieve greater depth and volume along with ongoing lessons in color theory. This course will teach you how to break down the reference into values and tones to create a free, less rigid painting style by seeing and utilizing the positive and negative forms and shapes to enhance your drawing skills. I will teach you how to draw the subject matter correctly and in proportion. We will then use diverse techniques week to week to create each pastel. This will be a fun, fulfilling step-by-step class creating beautiful one-of-a-kind works of art, as unique as the individual who creates them. This course is designed for all artistic levels. The course is non-refundable and no makeups are offered at this time. I will email references for all classes to print out and follow together with me during the lessons.
