Pastel Art and Color Theory

Explore the world of color and light perception with the rich velvety texture of pastels. Students work from a variety of subject matter and sources to create finished drawings with a range of hues, value and texture, through color mixing and blending.

All skill levels welcome.

Participants are responsible for providing their own supplies prior to the start of class.
