In this class, participants learn the basics of drawing with chalk pastels.  Participants explore color, the relationship of value to color, and methods of applying the pastels.  Participants also work on understanding the process of creating a pastel drawing in layers from an abstracted, under painting to the finishing, detailed marks.  Participants draw from observing the “still life” and from photographs.  Drawings from art history serve as examples of techniques and possibilities.  Previous drawing experience helpful.
