Youth ages 11-14 years old are invited to join pastel artist Kate Henderson for this FREE introduction to pastels and beyond. Participants will learn the basics of using soft pastels, including application, blending, and underpainting techniques. Participants will also explore different papers, types of pastels, and proper cleaning and care of materials. The class will focus on fun drawing exercises emphasizing color and valued relationships and end with a final drawing from life. No experience necessary. Pre-registration required as class size is limited. All materials included for class use. Pastel sets can be purchased to take home for $5 at the end of class.
This workshop is presented by ArtEcon Initiative and made possible with support from the Pincus Family Foundation, the Department of Economic and Community Development, CT Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and Kehler Liddell Gallery.
