Pastels are Perfect with Wendy Robson – A Two Day Pastel Workshop

Pastels are indeed the most perfect of all materials in that they never change. Reasonable to purchase, great fun, and easy to use they are a wonderful art medium. We will approach the weekend workshop starting with simple blended paintings and learning to layer pastels then move on to more mark making and how that will develop textures and colour mixing. You will develop your drawing skills while also learning valuable colour theory. Registered students can attend a demonstration on Friday evening (Sept. 15) at 7pm-9pm prior to the workshop at no charge and any other interested parties can attend by registering for the fee of $15.

Saturday and Sunday, September 16 and 17 9:15am – 4:00pm
Cutoff date to register is September 1st
