2018 MASTER WORKSHOPS

Workshops are now open to Non Members!

The Pastel Society of Cape Cod is pleased to announce our upcoming Master Workshops in June and October 2018.

"The Figure in Pastels"
with Margaret Dyer, Master Pastelist, PSA, MC/IAPS
2 Day Master Workshop

In Margaret’s workshops students are taught a traditional pastel painting technique. Working with live models, students will explore drawing, composition, anatomy, proportion, value, color and pastel application. Emphasis will be on developing form using light and shadow using Margaret’s easy step-by-step method. For those who are bewildered by color or are wanting to speed up and become less tight in their work, this is an excellent class to take. Students do not need prior pastel experience. Some drawing would be helpful, but not imperative.

Date #2 Thurs/Fri, June 21-22, 2018 9am - 4pm    ***REGISTER***

This workshop will take you from field studies to finished paintings.  Working outdoors, we'll spend time learning to better utilize our sketchbooks to create reference material, we'll focus on the daunting task of narrowing down the enormous amount of visual information found in the great outdoors so that we can create more effective paintings, and we'll spend a day in the studio working with the information we've gathered while outdoors.  This workshop will help you "see" more clearly so that you can be free to create more expressive landscape painting.

Cancellation policy: Space is limited and full tuition payment is required at time of registration. Registered persons who cancel by September 1, 2018 will receive a refund minus a $50 handling fee.
