Intro to Pastels Workshop, March 29-31, 2023

When: Wed, March 29, 2023 - Fri, March 31, 2023


Join me to learn the basics of the pastel medium in this 3 day intensive workshop at Dakota, right in the large classroom space and warehouse of the world's largest supplier of pastel products. I have taught hundreds of students (from beginners to advanced) solid methods of pastel application that are not offered in any other workshop venue.

Techniques for effectively using Hard Sticks, Soft Sticks and Pan Pastels, together with various pastel surfaces are all comprehensively covered in this workshop. Creative mark making with different pastel stroke pressures, stroke directions, color layering, blending to achieve luminosity, opacity and everything in between are demonstrated and taught in easy-to-understand ways.

As of January 18, this workshop is full. Watch the Dakota website for my future workshops!
