Did you love drawing with chalk as a child? Then this class is for you. Pastels are softer and more vibrant than your childhood chalk. Laying at the midpoint between drawing and painting, final pieces can be either emotive and painterly or detailed and realistic. In this class we will look at landscapes, portraits and still lifes as subjects. We will be discussing hard and soft pastels, pastel pencils, paper choices, fixatives and how to blend and use colors and different techniques to get different results. Come to play and get your hands dirty. Materials not included. Materials run $50 - 100. Instructor: Melissa Pandina.
