Create beautiful paintings using soft pastels while working from a still life and photographs of landscapes. Students will express themselves with their own style using various types of paper and learning about composition, value, and different painting techniques.
Laurinda will demonstrate techniques and will offer plenty of individual instruction. MAC will supply paper but students must bring their own photographic references and soft pastels.
Suggested varieties (from medium to soft and less expensive to higher quality) include Faber Castel, Rembrandt, Sennelier, Great American, Unisons, Diane Townsend, and Terry Ludwig. Sites to order from include dickblick.com, jerrysartarama.com, and dakotapastels.com
