Create a unique and personal presence in your pastel painting using the power of color and light.  In this still life class the student will explore composition, values and color mixing to achieve a deeper understanding of how light creates depth and rich color in the pastel painting. As always, Katie will teach through lecture, demonstrations, and lots of personal attention.
