Stan Sperlak will conduct a mixed indoor/outdoor landscape workshop in pastel that will cover his various methods of painting that focus on creating believable works through mature use of light, form and color. His teaching technique is very direct and easy to grasp, allowing for many hours of student teacher interaction. Demos, slideshows and props are all to be expected in his fast paced workshops. You will leave the workshop with a new sense of yourself as an artist.
Join this intensive pastel painting workshop on how to improve your pastel paintings of the landscape. The elusive effects of light on forms, designing better contrasts, layering, strengthening how colors can be employed to new effects, and solving the riddle for developing better understanding of values will all be weaved together with lessons about the history of art, discussion on the natural world and phenomena in the sky all to make your work take on a new appearance and believability. www.stansperlak.com

Experimental techniques with water and alcohol, working with gesso and pumice, under-paintings and developing new calligraphy will also be explored.
