This class is excellent for artists of all skill levels, from beginners to those who are more advanced; all are welcome. This is a great class for anyone who has wanted to try their hand at pastel for the first time, as well as those who have already discovered the joy of pastel and have experience. Working from landscape photo reference, students will learn the basic techniques of painting with this wonderfully versatile medium. They will begin with sketches and value studies, then learn techniques for underpainting and the layering process used for painting with pastel. In addition, students will learn the importance of design, color, and perspective. Each session will start with a lesson designed for the whole class regardless of skill level, then individual instruction will be given based on each student’s individual needs. Kaylinda is a lifelong artist and experienced instructor, who has worked with pastels for over 15 years.
