Pastel Class with Ivadell Marie, B.S. Art Education, PSC Signature Member

This class is ongoing focusing on:

  • Materials: Papers & various substrates, Pastels and experiment with
  • new materials
  • Color Theory
  • Values
  • Composition
  • Pastel Techniques (demonstrated & practiced)

Our time will focus on your artistic concept which we'll build with the basic principles and elements of art (line, shape, color, value, proportion, balance). We'll work together with whatever artistic level you begin with, and through encouragement, practice and just plain fun, you will develop your own style and finished artwork!

I just have a maximum of 4 students per class, so a lot of individual attention.

As one student stated, "It's a non-threatening & encouraging environment".

All levels are welcome since there is something to learn for all in this experience.

Price: $45/3 hr. session (if 3-4 students in class); Private class: $75/3 hr)
If you are hesitant jumping into a class environment, we can work together for a private 3-hour session prior to joining the class ... Just call to chat!
