Discover the beauty of pastels in this drawing class. Students will explore a variety of ways to use pastels and pastel pencil while learning how to render what they see. Basic drawing techniques will be discussed while working from observation and photographs. Students are encouraged to bring in photographs that interest them. The instructor will have references as well. Intended for beginners, but all skill levels are welcome. This class is for students aged 18 or older.

Teaching Artist Tara Santoro is passionate about all aspects of art, from creating art to its history, to helping others enjoy art. Tara’s goal as an instructor/mentor is to help students build self-confidence while developing their own natural style and inner artist.

“In every class I offer, each student will create pieces that interest them. I find this is the best way for students to learn. If they don't feel interested or engaged in the piece they lose interest quickly and or become frustrated. Also, every student is unique in how they learn and create. No two students’ brain, technique or style is the same. They will also learn about light, dark, shadowing, layering and building eye, brain and hand communication.” – Tara Santoro
