Introduction to Pastel with Margaret Ferraro
Date & Time: July 17-19th, 9am-4pm
Skill Level: Beginner
Just like oil or watercolour paint, pastels contain pure pigments that can be used to create a drawing or painting! We’ll be covering the basics of application techniques, study the work of pastellists around the world, and see how versatile and full of expression this medium is. Once some basic methods are established, students will learn how to plan and set up to paint, and will gain comprehensive knowledge of application techniques, layering, and completing a painting in pastel. By the end of the week, students will feel confident working independently in pastel.
