Pastel Studios I & II

This studio is for both experienced pastel artists as well as people new to the medium, or any art, for that matter. No experience necessary! We will have weekly topics that you may choose to follow, or spin off on your own work.

If you’re fascinated with vibrant color and line work, and want to carve out some time to work with a new medium, Becky will introduce you to the immediate gratification of pastel. This class will allow you to explore subjects while building skill and confidence in your handling of the medium.

For beginners and for those with drawing experience, the sessions will include drawing exercises and opportunities to create finished artworks. They will also offer an open environment of sharing knowledge and posing questions with individual attention. Experienced pastel artists may work on their own, with as much input and feedback as wanted.

Topics for class discussions include composition, value ranges, perspective, color, and light. If you work from photographs or already have sketches or objects you wish to work with, please bring those along, and if you have your own materials you’re welcome to use them. All materials will be supplied. Register now!

If you want to be introduced to the world of drawing or to expand on your knowledge of drawing, this workshop is for you. The curriculum will allow you to hone in on your level of comfort while building confidence and skill. Mark making, quality and types of lines, additive and subtractive drawing, scale, texture, composition, perspective, value ranges and volume are some of the topics we will cover.  We will include drawing exercises and opportunities to create finished works; you will leave with a small body of work.  There will be time to share knowledge and ask questions and to evaluate our work and progress. At the finish of this class you will not believe how much you have mastered and how far your drawings have progressed-that’s a guarantee from Becky!
