Pastel Workshop
Aug 11: 1 pm - 3 pm; Aug 25: 10 am - 12 noon

Instructor, Rita Paradis, CPS
Tuesdays, Aug 11 & Aug 25th
Aug 11 – 1 pm – 3 pm Aug 25th – 10 am – 12 noon

Offered on the 1st and 2nd Tuesday of each month

All beginning students will work with Prismacolor NuPastels on sanded paper. Students will work on simple subjects chosen by the instructor and begin to learn foundation techniques for “painting” with pastel. **The ability to draw will greatly enhance your experience with the pastel medium.

After you have taken at least 2 classes you will need to provide your own pastels and paper. The instructor will still offer reference photos for you to work from, however, if after a half dozen classes, you would like to work from your own reference photos you are welcome to do so. Students will continue to build on their techniques and use of color.

This is a class that a student can continue indefinitely. More advanced techniques will be explored, including using soft pastels, under-painting with acrylics, and students will be encouraged to challenge themselves with more complex reference photos.

Individual Workshops are $40 each or bundle both for $75. Please use the Drop-Down Menu when registering.

Workshops are limited to 6 students. All students will be required to abide by the the CT state guidelines for small group gatherings. Those guidelines will be sent to each student prior to the first class.
