Intro to Pastels

with Wade Zahares


Spontaneous and hands-on, pastels are a great medium for on location, illustrative and abstract work. Experiment with pastels from the hardest and most inexpensive to the softest imported chalk and oil pastels, and the many types of pastel papers on the market. Enjoy the benefits of weekly critiques of your work. The objective is for you is to feel comfortable with this medium and develop a style of your own.
