"Pastel and Drawing Innovations"
October 25-27, 2018
 

In this 3 day intensive class Dawn will present major concepts from her book, "Pastel Innovations". Participants will explore new ways of drawing that will change fundamental concepts about what drawing is. They will explore using non traditional tools and materials for mark making as they explore transfer techniques, monotype, pan pastels, mixed media, and new surfaces for pastel. Approaching painting and drawing in a playful way is the foundation for growth as an artist and Dawn's teaching style will help each person "loosen up" by showing you ways to let go of old habits. Come ready to learn and enjoy!
