In this class, students will learn how to draw a simple scene with pastel, learn to accurately measure, gain skill in coloring and shading, and adding rich textures with pastel. Students will learn to add finishing touches that make an image stand out and will improve drawing accuracy.
When finished, students will have acquired a new set of skills and greater understanding of how to effectively use pastels.
