Plein Air Pastel Workshop
Monday–Friday, 1:30–5:00 pm
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 12 students
Pastel is an extraordinarily versatile, forgiving, and immediate medium, which combines all the virtues of drawing and painting. Starting with the still life, and then working outdoors on locations in the city, students will explore the selection of a good subject, the creation of a compositional outline, blocking out of the pattern of darks and lights, building up layers of pastel, and the utilization of accents and highlights to refine details. Mr. Hauben uses demonstrations and individualized instruction to help each student find their own connection with the medium. This class is for all levels.
