Pastel Portraits

Studio Arts Workshop

Saturday, June 22, 2019 - 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Code: 1K00LP

By a student of Gary Shankman

Degas, Manet, and Cassatt achieved remarkable results in their portraits by employing the strong lines and luminous colors of pastels. Learn to achieve similar results with the medium, either through the immediacy of a sketch or a detailed portrait study. Students work in the studio with a live model and focus on the elements of portraiture and pastel technique. Participants should have basic drawing skills.

This class includes a lunch break (participants provide their own). Model fees are included.
