PASTEL: Drawing with Pure Color
with Mary Shea
Saturday, October 8th 2011 - FREE demo!
at 11 am & 1:45 pm
“At this Demonstration, I will be talking about my love for pastels, especially the Sennelier soft pastels, and I hope to show why pastels are worth being passionate about. I’ll also show and discuss other artists’ pastel works, and some of some of the history of the medium."
"There will be examples of my work done over many years’ time to show the pastel processes and techniques that I explore in my drawings and use to enhance my monotypes."
"I’ll talk about ways to frame and present pastels, the ‘mess’ factor, and the issue of fixative/no fixative, among other topics. And I’ll demonstrate some of the different methods of using dry pastel that I use, talk about the color choices I make, and show the papers I work on."
"There will be time for questions!” -Mary Shea
