May 22, 10am -4pm at Adelaide Hills Art Academy, 1 Cox Place Crafers.
$180 for a full day workshop, including pastel paper and use of all pastel materials for the day; a comprehensive art class in pastel painting. Lunch and beverages are available for purchase from our cafe. **Please scroll down for additional things to bring**
In this full day workshop, you will learn how to paint an expressive dog portrait in the timeless medium of soft pastels. Plenty of reference images will be provided but if you want to paint your own special pooch it must be photographed on an A4 sheet of paper with particular attention to the clarity of the eyes and face and fur tones. Include in your kit of soft pastel colours that will match the dog’s fur colouring (note: black dogs will be painted in tones of blues and browns). Paper will be provided and included in the cost.
Demonstrations will be given as well as plenty of one-on-one tuition.
The emphasis of the day is to be creative, to explore different ways of using soft pastels and, above all, to have fun.
The class is open to artists of all skill levels and will explore methods and techniques to simplify the image.
This pastel class is hosted by South Australian pastel artist, Janette Humble, who recently featured in an episode of the popular art series 'Colour in Your Life'.
Please refer to the below materials list for what you need to bring. Pastel paper is included in the fee.
