Instructor: Kathleen Fish


 This is a shorter version of the regular Pastel Painting class that is open to beginners and to students who have done some pastel work. The focus will be on learning and practicing methods of doing the initial sketch or drawing and then working with ways of applying the pastel for getting the colors, their values, intensity, textures and temperature to work with it. The aim is to make the student's created pastel image successfully stand out and lead it's future viewers' eyes into it. (The "How to Measure for Mat Cutting and a Frame" handout is also available for those who would like it along with answers to questions about framing). HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WELCOME!
