Pastel Painting: Sharpening Skills with Katie Cassidy
February is the perfect time to work on skills and techniques in this wonderful medium. Katie will review all the basics and introduce some new ones, especially layering to create new colors and glazing for greater luminosity. Subject matter will be varied and values and color theory will be reviewed. A good class for beginners to pastel or the experienced pastelist who is looking for new challenges.
