Have you been wanting to try your hand using soft "chalk" pastels? Have you tried them and then put them away in frustration? I assure you, you're not alone. This workshop is suited for all levels of artists...from beginners to experienced artists wanting to learn about the magical medium of soft pastels. No matter your style...realistic, impressionistic, abstract, etc, pastels provide a vibrant, portable, and versatile medium from which you can make beautiful paintings. Local &, award-winning artist, Lori Goll, will discuss and demonstrate different brands of soft pastels, various substrates, underpainting techniques, framing and storage options, studio safety, online and retail resources, plein air setups, etc. You will be able to try out different types of pastels on different surfaces to learn and feel their individual characteristics, blendability, texture, etc. Lori will provide seascape photos for reference but you are welcome to bring your own reference photo. Each student will create a small painting to take home. Lori will provide an 8x10 sanded board for you, her preferred pastel substrate, but you are welcome to bring your own paper/board if you have a favorite.
You will enjoy a friendly and relaxed atmosphere where artists and students of all levels get together to learn and share the creative experience of painting with pastels. Lori will guide you with demos and individual attention in sharing her techniques, skill, and knowledge to create a serene and beautiful seascape. About midday, lunch will be served in the home of your host, Marcia Klioze. Learn something new, create, and share in the friendly ambiance of this 1-day pastel workshop.
