This class has a new structure different from the regular class. During the first three weeks, the student learns the fundamentals of the exciting medium of pastel (value, composition,
color theory, and techniques). After each mini-lecture and demonstration, the student does a pastel, incorporating what was discussed. The next three weeks, the student concentrates on the development of personal style with the subject matter of their choice. Various textures, papers, and applied techniques are explored. Group discussions and critiques are a part of every class. Open to all levels. Class limited to 10 students.
