Tuesdays, October 9, 16, 23, & 30 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Instructor: David Shkolny
This new class invites you to create pastel studies of famous Impressionist works, including Monet’s Woman with a Parasol, Degas’ Bather series, a winter landscape by Pissarro, and more. Starting with a solid underdrawing we will gradually layer pastel to achieve the beautifully textured colour arrangements the Impressionists achieve. We will also look at some contemporary pastellists such as the wonderful colourist Margaret Dyer. Learning from the best is the best way to learn!
