Become skilled in depicting architecture in pastel, from farms to cities to (if you’re so inclined) palaces. Discover the key to using perspective correctly, applying varied textural effects, conveying light and shadow. Learn the power of framing and cropping, as well as other elements essential to creating a solid piece. The instructor will provide reference photographs, and students are encourage to bring their own for a final project.
