This course is an introduction to and survey of the medium of Pastel Drawing. Our goal will be to develop an understanding of the materials with which we are working and how the qualities of Pastel can be analogous to the qualities of our experience. We will begin with a brief review and refresher of drawing as a foundation for the work will do in color with Paste, then discuss basic color theory and optical color mixing. We will focus on building space, form, and light through color relationships. We will work with a variety of subject matter from still life to landscape, the figure and interior spaces. As you develop your skill and comfort level with pastel I will encourage you to work more independently and deal with whatever subject matter you engage with most. This class will be held online, via Zoom.
