Do you have a favorite photo that you would love to recreate? Join us when we learn how to blend colors and discuss composition to create great pastel artwork! Color palettes will be explained in terms of warm versus cool selections and examples will be practiced. The use of different color paper and how it affects the final artwork and color composition will be explored. One of our first projects will be a pet portrait, so a good quality photography will be needed. Sketching basics will be practiced based on reference photos or graphite sketches (time will be given for sketches to be done from free hand or from the reference photo). Kathy will instruct you through every step of this process and work with the individual needs of her students. This class is for all skill levels. See the list of materials you will need to attend this class. BIO Kathy is an experienced artists and has lived in many parts of the country throughout her life. Her varied background and personal vision in the arts has enabled her to see the world from a different perspective which she will bring to life in her teaching. Kathy works in different mediums such as gourd carving, wood burning and enjoys pastels. From the woods and trails of Pennsylvania to the lakes and mountains of Washington state, the urban life of Los Angeles and Sacramento, California, the sands and balloons of Albuquerque, and the markets around the streets of Santa Fe, Kathy has traveled to Montana and many other places. She spent eight years studying the Native American traditions and the rancher's prairie lives while teaching their children about some of our great Artistic masters.
