Nights Out@New Art, Introduction to Pastels
May 10, 2012
Presented By: Jill Pottle Pastel is a wonderful medium that can capture the majestic beauty of nature on a simple piece of paper. The medium allows the artist to produce vivid images while employing pigments in their purest form, more so than other wet media such as oils or acrylics. In this NONA, we will view some outstanding pastel works and explore foundation drawing, materials, technique, supports, and preservation. Working primarily in dry pastels, participants will experiment with the medium’s endless possibilities. Come with any level of experience, and leave with a smile!
