Introduction to Pastel Techniques

Instructor: Marvyn Rivett

This hands-on workshop will introduce you to a variety of materials and techniques which can be used with soft pastels. Experiment with different makes of hard and soft pastels. Try different pastel surfaces and various techniques for creating underpaintings using watercolors, alcohol or other liquids. Try before you buy - the instructor will provide materials to use in the workshop but if you already have supplies and want to try new ideas bring them along.
