Beginner to Intermediate students will really love this class! Perhaps you’ve wanted to experiment with pastels, with their vibrancy and freedom, but were just looking for the right instructor – someone with credentials, experience, and someone known for a systematic approach yet a free-flowing style…. Look no further! Joe Mac Kechnie is that instructor! His students rave about what a great teacher he is. Now is your chance to give pastels a try in this great, 5-week format.
If you have taken Joe’s drawing classes, you have experienced the freedom and ease of working with soft charcoals. The next logical and natural step is to move to pastels. The tactile feedback and the ease of use are the same as charcoal. The only new variable is color. Joe will introduce this medium by teaching you color systems for applying and mixing colors. Over the 5-weekly classes, artist Joe Mac Kechnie will show you how to create stunning, colorful artworks full of movement and energy.
