Ages 17+ (Adult)
Plein Air Weekend Workshop
Do you want to learn and perfect your plein air painting skills using soft pastels? Then dust
off your pastels and join us in a workshop to create a landscape painting working en plein air!
This two day workshop will give the student an opportunity to learn and practice using soft
pastels in the field, developing a landscape painting by doing an underpainting of pastels with
alcohol and finishing the work with soft pastels. This class will focus on composition, light and
pastel technique with demo, notes and narrative with Bonnie. Class size is limited to insure
personal easel time and assistance.
Designed for those with a basic knowledge of pastel painting and desire to further their skills, this weekend workshop will review composition, color theory, and use of the medium, as well as teach new techniques to create a stronger painting in plein air.
