My Pastel Workshop July 19, 2012

I gave a pastel workshop this week at Abanakee Studios in Indian Lake.  When I first started doing these a few years ago, I wasn't sure I could be an effective teacher, but I find I love it.  It's so rewarding to see people discover pastels and enjoy a day of painting and learning the medium.  It's also especially nice when the weather cooperates, as it did this year - a lovely day in the high 70's, with lots of sunshine and  beautiful skies to paint.  My students were so talented - they each caught on easily and each produced at least one piece they could be proud of.
