About This Class

Hi everyone, As a fine artist, I have a passion for pastel painting, and in this class, you will learn what pastels are, a glimpse at my favorite pastelists throughout history, the different types of pastels and other materials you may need to get started.  I will be happy to teach you the techniques I learned along the way!
