Pastel Class October 14 Bastrop, Texas

Enid Wood http://enidwood.com  has been teaching a pastel class at the Bastrop Fine Arts Gallery on the second Tuesday during the school season.  This year I will be doing some of the classes.  October 14 will be my turn.

Tuesday, October 14
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon

5 Values in a Still Life:  Learn about using values to give a still life painting a real, Trompe-l'œil (three dimensional) look.  This technique applies to still life but can work with landscape and floral work as well. 

Suggested materials to bring:

  • Small still life objects, fruit, vase, glass, box or use what Jo brings.  Simple items to learn technique, not to make a finished painting. 
  • Pastel paper or Pastelbord at least 11 x 14 inches in size
  • Soft pastels (not oil pastels)
  • Floor Easel or table easel - It is much easier to work upright to keep your pastel painting clean and fresh
  • Board, cardboard or foam core to put your paper on to work on the easel
  • Tape
  • Viva paper towels and old soft towel, hand wipes
  • Apron or comfy old clothes
  • Paper or sketchbook for notes and drawing

If you are a beginner and do not have pastels but want to give them a try.  Call Jo and she will bring some pastels and paper for you.
512 629-9264 Jo Studio Phone

Techniques will work in all media, but we will be working with soft pastels in class.

$20 for the class.

Limited space, sign up soon. 

Class and registration at the:

Bastrop, Texas

BEWARE!  Pastels can be addictive!
