Drawing into Pastel
with Mary Welsh
Participants will begin with learning how to draw in black and white using various types of pencils, pens and charcoal, different papers and other surfaces. Composition, perspective and light and shadow will be presented along with basic shapes and how they relate to the world around us. Later we will bring in pastel enriching the foundation already learned with color. We will do landscapes, still lifes and portraits as well as abstract design. Emphasis will be on the individuality of each student as we are all different and have unique ways of expressing ourselves. For the first class, students will need a number 6B drawing pencil and an art gum eraser and a 9x12 drawing pad. Former students and beginners are welcome. No class 10/7/17.
