Painting, Drawing, Printmaking & Mixed Media Workshops

Pastel Still Life Through the Ages

Learn about pastel technique and materials as you explore three unique styles of artists from the 18th through the 21st century. Students will create three pastel still life pieces using a vibrant cornucopia of fall peppers, squash, persimmons, apples, pears, and Thanksgiving pastries. You may also personalize your still life with fruit from your tree or the farmers’ market.

Our first piece will use the bold coloration of California’s Wayne Thiebauld, (imagine his cakes with rich colorful contours and contrasting backgrounds). Next, we will explore the rhythmic approach of Cezanne with his apples and pears and unique cubist perspective. In our last session we will follow the classical approach of 18th Century Chardin with the use of subtle grays and tones to build a centered peaceful, deep space pastel still life. In our final session we will celebrate in our classroom filled with student’s beautiful work.

Participants will come away with several beautiful pastel studies perfect for seasonal gifts or ideas for personalized cards.

Instruction is geared to support the creativity of beginners to advanced artists.
