Presenter: Mary Goudy-Black.

I have worked with most of the art media available, but the last five years I have been working mostly in Pastel.  It is a wonderful media to work with.  You can blend it so that it looks totally life-like or use it for amazing abstracts.  I have used it for portraits of both people and animals, and it works out amazingly well.  There are different types of paper you can use and there are different types of pastels available.  I will bring some of each kind with me.  I prefer the dry pastels myself but have used the other types as well.  This will be a fun class that will introduce you to different ways to handle this media, or to give you ideas to use with what you are now using.  This media can be combined with both watercolors, acrylics, charcoal, pencil or any other media that doesn’t have an oil base.  If you have questions about other types of media I can likely answer them for you.  I look forward to seeing you for this call.
