8-A-Day Variations & Meditations in Pastel

March 26-28
All Levels $310

Following in the wake of Marla Baggetta's recent article "Going for 100" in the October 2009 issue of the Pastel Journal, this workshop is designed to help you move past resistance and hesitation in your work by working on multiple pieces of the same composition. Over the course of this three day workshop you will use the fundamentals of painting as the foundation and jumping off point. With Marla as your guide, you will explore the lessons that can be gleaned from delving deeply into a theme and repeating it. Some mixed media techniques will be employed to foster a playful approach. This is a fast paced and fun exploration of what painting means to you!
