Paint­ing in pas­tels is quick, easy, col­or­ful, beau­ti­ful, very por­ta­ble - and FUN! Han­dled cor­rectly, pas­tels will last many life­times and their pure colors never fade, crack, or peel. No stress and no pres­sure here to paint a mas­ter­piece. You’ll learn how to turn “happy ac­ci­dents” into a part of your paint­ing, or erase it - pas­tels are very for­giv­ing. Ev­ery­one will hjave a chance to ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent tech­niques and ma­te­ri­als, and you’ll de­velop your own unique style over time. For those who are new to art, you’ll learn the ba­sics of draw­ing and paint­ing. For more ex­pe­ri­enced artists who are new to pas­tels, you’ll learn the char­ac­ter­is­tics and tech­niques that are unique to pas­tels. At the end of each class, you’ll have a fin­ished or nearly-fin­ished paint­ing to take home, ready for fram­ing. Each stu­dent is en­cour­aged to learn at their own pace. You are wel­comed to do a class­based paint­ing from ref­er­ence pho­tos pro­vided by the in­struc­tor, or bring in your own ref­er­ence ma­te­ri­als to use. We may also paint from life, or go out­doors to paint as the weather per­mits. Dur­ing this on­go­ing course, you will: -Im­prove your draw­ing skills, in­clud­ing pro­por­tions and per­spec­tive. -Learn how to see and paint val­ues, types of un­der­paint­ings, both wet and dry. -Cre­ate dif­fer­ent ef­fects us­ing hard vs. soft pas­tels. -Layer and blend pas­tels to get ex­actly the color you want. -De­velop and use a por­ta­ble pas­tel kit for out­door paint­ing and travel. -Know how to paint trees, clouds and wa­ter. -Learn how to paint and draw from life and en plein air (out­doors). There’s no pres­sure to de­velop a mas­ter­piece or “do it right”. This class is all about hav­ing fun and dis­cov­er­ing the artist in you. You’ll have lots of in­di­vid­ual at­ten­tion from the in­struc­tor with help­ful feed­back so your paint­ings keep get­ting bet­ter. Your sup­ply list has op­tions to fit a bud­get, and ev­ery­one is wel­comed to reg­is­ter and join us any time.
