Introduction to Pastel: A Demonstration

Pastel artist, Karen Israel will demonstrate a simple still-life subject in a 2.5-hour demonstration. During this demo, she will speak about materials, color mixing, layering, and how to create volume with the objects. There will be general instruction on the basics of drawing and perspective, and the topics of value, hue, and saturation of color will be discussed and demonstrated.

This is for all levels, especially beginners to pastel.

The fee for the class is $55. The workshop is limited to 12 students. 

Karen Israel’s pastel paintings are defined by their dynamic compositions and unique viewpoints. She is influenced by the light and mood of the subject and allows those elements to dictate her approach. These subjects are rendered with a strong appreciation for the rigors of formal design coupled with a fearless array of color choices. In addition to numerous awards, Karen’s work has garnered the honor of Signature Member with the American Artists Professional League, Master Circle with the International Association of Pastel Societies, and Master Pastelist with the Pastel Society of America. Karen is an artist member of the Salmagundi Club, NYC, the Copley Society, Boston, and the Lyme Art Association
