Hi everyone, I will be teaching a one day PASTEL workshop at the Georgetown Art Center on September 13th 9.30 am - 3.30pm

See link for details
I hope you can join me..

This workshop is designed not only to show the pastel student how they can use this medium in differing ways, but also will concentrate on design and composition. Rae will demonstrate techniques and varied approaches for manipulating pastels. Individual expression is key to Rae and she will strive to bring out each student’s personal sense of design and color.
Rae uses velour paper generally for portraits and also good sanded paper. She will demonstrate both at this workshop. Students can choose which substrate they prefer as each will give a different result.
There will be ongoing critiques throughout this workshop, and students can expect short technical demos on the use of pastels throughout the afternoon.

Placing geometric panels in a painting really makes you think of design and composition.
