With an emphasis on creating lines, shapes, and color rather than technical ability, this is a perfect pastel class for everyone! A fun two-day session includes discussions of movement, harmony, and symmetry through demos, a group exercise, and individual renderings. Abstract imagery will emerge from washed underpaintings with overlays of shapes and markings onto an assortment of paper. All materials provided; bring materials fee of $18 payable to instructor (cash or check) on first day of class. Limited enrollment.
