Wednesdays, July 12-August 16

2:00-4:00 pm

Instructor: Kathleen Fish



This class offers a cross between drawing and painting. It's the perfect medium to bridge your drawing skills with color. We will explore different methods and tools that can take us from starting out with a sketch to ending up with a completely finished painting done in soft pastels. Starting with basic color principals, we will work with various techniques and we will also learn how to measure and cut mats for our finished artwork so it's ready for framing. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WELCOME!



Hard Pastel Set (NuPastel brand recommended)

Soft Pastel Set (Rembrandt Pastel recommended)

A sheet of Canson Mi-tientes pastel paper (grey tone preferred)

A decent sized piece of foam core to use as a drawing board

An 8 X 10 reference photo of a subject  the student would like to do a pastel painting of (Because of the shorter time span with this class, the student should consider a subject and the size of the paper for their artwork).

Prior to first session, if you have any questions regarding the class or materials, Kathleen is willing to set up a time to meet or discuss over the phone.
