Intro to Chalk Pastels
Add to your calendar
Date: March 6, 5:15 pm
Location: Art Studio of the Center for the Arts
Details: In this class, participants will learn the basics of drawing with chalk pastels. We will explore color, the relationship of value to color, and methods of applying the pastels. We will also work on understanding the process of creating a pastel drawing in layers from an abstracted, under painting to the finishing, detailed marks. We will draw from observing the “still life” and from photographs. Drawings from art history will serve as examples of techniques and possibilities. Previous drawing experience is helpful.

When: Thursdays, March 6-27
