Dramatic and versatile, soft pastels can be one of the most beautiful, yet intimidating of materials. Tonja will help remove any inhibitions you may have in regard to pastels, giving practical insight into this wonderful media.
Tonja will walk you through the technical aspects of pastel use and beautiful mark-making while introducing you to all available forms of pastel and to various paper options.
