PASTELS--DRAWING WITH THE RAINBOW!

In the Station House Gallery upstairs art room
A two-day introduction to the materials and methods of creating artwork with
soft pastels. This workshop is hands-on, with short lectures and
discussion. You will learn about the various types of soft pastels and
pastel papers, pastel application methods, and combining pastels with other
drawing materials. Books on pastels and finished pastel artworks will be
available as reference materials for use during the workshop. Workshop is
limited to 8 participants to allow time for both individual and group
instruction. Previous drawing experience is helpful but not essential.
NOTE: Soft pastels (also called dry pastel and chalk pastel) are NOT oil
pastels which require an entirely different method of working than will be
taught in this workshop.
Cost--$130 plus $19 for package of specialty pastel art papers supplied by
the instructor. A supply list will be handed out upon registration.
