Be prepared to literally dance your way through 4 days of intensive fun, exhausting work and empowering pastel painting and drawing with Dawn Emerson. This workshop is sure to shake you out of your comfort zone and launch you to new horizons with your pastels! Through daily demonstrations and exercises, you'll explore the landscape, the clothed figure and animals as your subject matter while you learn to explore new approaches to seeing and painting. This will be an environment where you can take artistic risks and embark on a more intuitive approach to pastel painting to get you in touch with the joy of being an artist.
