You will learn how to compose a picture with purpose, placing elements in your picture to tell the story you want to tell. You’ll learn to adjust or replace elements in a visually convincing manner. This class will also explore perspective and color as compositional tools.

Painting with Pastel

6pm – 8pm CST
Tuesdays, Nov 10 – Dec 15, 2020 (six weeks)

Class description

Soft pastels combine the expressive mark-making of a drawing tool with the highest pigment concentration of any art medium. If you have a set lying about that you never learned to use properly, this is your chance!

Combining thorough demonstrations and a live model, this class will get you on the road to making luminous portraits and figure paintings with your new favorite medium!

Some drawing experience will be required in this class, as will a basic knowledge of color theory. We will experiment with different techniques and surfaces, and students can expect to do a minimum of 3 different poses.
