The Still-Life in Pastel

Studio Arts Workshop

Sunday, June 23, 2019 - 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Code: 1K00LQ

By Gary Shankman

The redness of an apple, the folds of drapery, and the shimmer of metal are part of the rich tradition of still-life drawing captured by the luminous and versatile pastel medium. In this workshop, beginning and experienced students work directly from still-life arrangements as they explore the techniques of cross-hatching and layering of color through personal experimentation and demonstrations by the instructor. Composition, perspective, and rendering are reviewed and emphasized.

Students should have basic drawing skills. They may also wish to photograph the still-lifes in order to continue working at home.
