Students will use three different surfaces and learn a cost-effective way to make their own pastel surfaces.  Demonstrations and critiques are part of this lively workshop. Students will work from still life set ups and photographs. The workshop will cover techniques for using photos and improving compositions, while helping students develop their unique viewpoints and creative approaches to the pastel medium.
