Beginning Soft Pastel Class
COMING SOON / DATE TBA
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
ANA Gallery @ Rogers Experimental House
121 W. Walnut Street
Rogers, AR 72756
Pastel is Pure Color!
This four hour class is for artists who have never worked or just briefly tried the medium of soft pastel. I will demo various pastel brands and how they respond to different supports. Also, how to use pastels safely, keep your work area clean and discuss the pros and cons of the medium.
If you have some soft pastels and a table easel, please bring them. If you do not have pastels, don’t buy any for this class. I have zillions and you can use mine to find out if you like them. If you do want to continue with pastel, you’ll have a better understanding of quality and not waste your money on substandard products.
Those of you who normally work in watercolor might really enjoy using pastels on an unsuccessful watercolor piece and if you already have a painting you would like help with, feel free to bring it.
I began my art journey 25 years ago with pastels and am a Signature Member of Pastel Society of America, National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society and Artists of Northwest Arkansas.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
I originally began painting in pastel nearly 30 years ago focusing on portraits. I am a Signature Member of Pastel Society of America, National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society and Artists of Northwest Arkansas. I still enjoy painting people and faces but most of my current work is in landscapes, especially the rivers and bluffs of the Ozark Mountains.
