Ready to simplify and focus on a direct approach to painting? During this session we will begin with a toned surface using a dry application method in Pastel. This class will provide you with that "bread and butter" technique in pastel that translates wonderfully to Plein Air work when time is of the essence. From your original concept you will be provided with step by step demonstrations and manuals to help you take away the tools you need to complete paintings. Individual Coaching at the easel and weekly demonstrations will set you up for success in a fun, inspiring, creative learning environment.

All levels welcome, a supply list will be provided.

Deposit of $50.00 due at registration with the remainder due the first day of class. Feel free to call if you have questions.
