Instructor David Shkolny

Through step by step instruction, enjoy learning the ins and outs of working with pastel. Working from photos we will begin with simple still life compositions to grasp the techniques that are unique to pastel, from a structured light charcoal sketch to a vibrantly coloured finished piece. Following that we will work on landscapes, utilizing sanded paper, which allows many layers of colour to create a rich surface. 

You can bring your own supplies or David can supply everything you need at an additional cost $60.
