Join Kathryn Bevier in this exciting opportunity to hone your pastel skills on the enchanted grounds at Linwood Gardens. Overlooking the Genesee Valley and the distant hills of the Finger Lakes makes for the perfect place for working with pastels en plein air. The Arts and Crafts style home provides beautiful interiors to serve as a back drop to several still life compositions. Regardless of weather, the setting will surely inspire creativity. This workshop will focus on working with pastel using a value (light to dark) based approach. There will be two main demonstrations each day that focus on the uniqueness of the setting with plenty of hands on time and individual attention. Using the value scale as your armature, you will be freer to explore color combinations to create the look you want to achieve. Atmospheric and linear perspective through the use of color, as well as establishing strong compositional skills will be at the core of this workshop.
Participants may sign up for either or both days. Class size limited to 8 and open to all levels of experience, must be 16 or older. Professional pastel paper provided, a supply list will be sent upon registration.
