This is an online class. Instruction includes a weekly tutorial, individual feedback and critique, and a weekly Zoom session where the class can discuss topics and share with each other. All levels are welcome, and you can participate from anywhere.
This class will help you develop confidence with the pastel medium, including building a strong composition, understanding values, creating light and shadow, and developing cohesive color harmony to develop a strong painting from start to finish. Various underpainting techniques will be introduced. Students may use reference photos have taken yourself or paint from life. All levels of experience are welcome. A materials list will be provided upon registration. Contact Jane Penfield at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
In this Building on “Basics of Drawing” class, students will focus on three areas of drawing. (Students who did not previously take Basics of Drawing can still participate in this class). By knowing the fundamentals, one can begin drawing creatively; exploring how to stretch the fundamentals. Although the outline may sound a bit academic, it is not a technical drawing class. This class is designed to add more tools to your kit for drawing whatever you wish, however you want!

• Create successful compositions from photos, what to crop out, what to add or change
• Begin your painting by sketching then blocking in shapes for an underpainting
• Practice and try creating different effects by using different brushes
• Create dynamic paintings with the help of color
• Why you don’t need black paint
