This workshop will be at ArtWorks - just 3 blocks away from Cole Gallery, with an airy, large space and their own parking lot. Notice also the extended time (until 6pm on Saturday, 5pm on Sunday and Monday); come rested and prepared to absorb as much info as you can – Amanda is a very generous instructor.

A great mix of theory, technique and experimentation, Amanda will also demo how to use different techniques on different surfaces to achieve great results. You will have the option to learn to create your own surface by painting a sanded gesso to a board or metal – supplies for this option will be provided by the instructor for the $20 supply fee – please bring cash or check payable to Amanda if you are interested in this option.

Some experience in pastels is necessary.
