Dot Stepenaski – Holistic Pastel Painting

Wednesday, 9:30am-12:30pm
April 3 – May 8 (6 weeks)
$135 members / $145 non-members

“Thanks to a growing interest and demand in pastels, there is now a wealth of new colors and surfaces to work on. This class will work with color as value. When you have a solid understanding of value, you can paint any subject, landscape, portrait or still life. Students who are new to pastels will begin working on exercises to understand how to handle pastels, value and build colors. They will then work on a painting. Those with more experience will be challenged according to their skill level. Students should contact the instructor to review the supplies they currently have.”
