Intro to Pastels

with Wade Zahares


Class has begun

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 instructor's objective for you is to feel comfortable with this medium and develop a style of your own.

Please bring an assorted pastel set, artist's paper tape, drawing board, 18x24" sheet of pastel paper, plastic eraser, and workable fixative (approx. $60). Check out our Gallery.

Wade Zahares has illustrated seven children's books, including Window Music, a 1998 NY Times Best Illustrated Book. He specializes in corporate commissions for such clients as McDonalds, Bank of America & HBO.
