Margaret Dyer, The Figure In Pastels Workshop

Margaret Dyer The Figure In Pastels Workshop
Mon.-Thurs., March 16-19, 2009
Montgomery College,
Rockville Campus, AR 401

The workshop will be an intense four-day workshop in which students are taught a traditional pastel painting technique.  Working with live models, students will explore drawing, composition, anatomy, proportion, value, color, and pastel application. Emphasis will be on developing form using light and shadow. For those wanting to speed up and become less tight in their work, this is an excellent class to take. All levels are welcome.

The class will be limited to 18 students, one of whom will be a Montgomery College student. The other 17 participants are limited to members of the Maryland Pastel Society.

The cost of the 4-day workshop is $400.  A down payment of $100 is required with the enrollment form.  This covers the workshop only.  A list of area hotels will be made available later.
