One of my favorite mediums is pastel. Every color is laid out in front of you without having to figure out how to mix just the right amounts to create your color as has to be done with paint. Yet it still provides the capacity to blend and mix colors right on the paper. The approach is deeply dependent on your ability to draw with some level of skill and is highly recommended that you have previously developed skill in drawing before taking the plunge. You will learn about setting up your work on toned or colored paper and how to work from light to dark for the most visual impact. Still life and landscapes will be the subject matter for classes.
