Date: Tuesdays, October 3 & 10, 2023
Time: 9:00-11:00 AM Pacific Time (12:00-2:00 PM Eastern Time/5:00-7:00 PM London Time)
In this two-day workshop, we will concentrate on encouraging a bolder approach to pastel painting. We will discover how being more adventurous with our mark making, colour choices and compositions, will help us to push our pastel painting beyond the purely representational approach to the pastel medium. This workshop will encourage students to step out of their comfort zone and to embrace their pastel wild side!
