Back to Basics with Pastel with Barbara Kern-Bush

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Cost: $40 Members, $50 Non-Members
An exciting new addition to our catalogue is being offered for those who would like to learn more about painting with pastels. All successful painting follows to a various degree basic elements of design, color and value. In this series of pastel classes students will, while experiencing and experimenting with the marvelous properties of pastel, constantly revisit and stay aware of these elements. While pastel is often considered more of a studio medium, we will, according to the wants and needs of the group, be alternately setting up a still life indoors or using photographic references, or possibly working live from a model at least during one session, all the while addressing the caveats of each approach. During each session students will also have the choice to work on their own painting from their own chosen photos, at their own pace. There will be some time set aside to share insights at the end of each session. Students will also be encouraged to share inspirational master level painters’ work (books, online images, etc.). Together we will throw ourselves into this beautiful, vibrant medium!
