Student painting from pastel class

The purpose of this class is to develop an understanding of the use of pastels on color paper and Velour. Drawing-and composing illustrations are done in charcoal. Color is applied using and combining pastel colors, shadows and shading. Perspective and 3D rendering are reviewed. Working with the color wheel participants learn to blend hues with primary and secondary color intensity and values. Sketching is done from still life, static displays and studio props. Individual reviews throughout every session. Basic drawing is recommended for this class. Provide your own art supplies or purchase from the instructor.
