Techniques for Pastels           
Friday & Saturday, September 7-8, 9 am–4 pm
with Jude Tolar, PSA*, IAPS/MC**
This two-day workshop will focus on techniques for painting with hard and soft pastels. We’ll work mainly from life, using various objects as our models. We'll also work some from photos.
I’ll demo each day and work with each artist individually. All levels of experience are welcome, from beginners to seasoned pastelists. Ages 16 and up.

Thursday's, August 9th  &  August 16th, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm. Glass Fusing Basics is where it all begins! Glass fusing is a way to bring eclectic pieces of glass together to create beautiful contrast.  During the class, you will learn some of the basics of glass fusing while making a silver metal bracelet as well as a pair of earrings and a pendant or brooch. 

Saturday, August 18th, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. Want to create gorgeous photos on your own phone or computer, but aren’t sure how to get started?  We will cover rotating & cropping for more pleasing composition, resizing, color correction, patching blemishes, and more. It is recommended that students take & bring their own photos, but some sample photos to practice on will be provided by the teacher. Students will have the opportunity to create an 8.5 by 11 inch digital print of one of their edited photos.
