Beginner to Advanced


Are you a fan of realism? Then, pastels are for you. Do you absolutely love abstracts? Then, pastels are for you, too. In this two-day workshop you'll learn the basics but also learn to play and cut loose. You'll learn about how to use pastels correctly and when to break the rules. We'll talk about things like composition and color, but also about experimentation.


No prior pastel experience is required--only your imagination, because anything is possible.
