Pastel Instruction / Classes in the Atlanta Area

If you are looking for pastel instruction in the Atlanta Georgia area I would love to discuss the many options I offer. From private lessons to weekly group sessions to one day mini-workshops, I offer classes for students of all levels of experience. We meet in my Marietta, Georgia studio. The link to the current schedule of classes is on the sidebar on the right. If you have any questions, please send me an email. I'd love to help you on your journey with pastels!

I have finalized my Spring Pastel Class schedule and have a couple of new and interesting offerings. I know Spring is a busy time but I hope to see you at a class this Spring. Here are the two NEW classes you might want to consider:

1) *Water, Water Everywhere! * Sunday March 21 form 2-4 pm. This is a 2 hour class on painting water. I will show you ways to paint still and moving water, whitewater , waves and reflections. We will do a paint-along and then you are free to stay as long as you wish to work on some water paintings.
The cost for this class is $25. Note that this isn't the usual 4 hour workshop but I will have the studio open for you to stay and paint after the 2 hour class.

2) *Plein Air Success! * Saturday May 8th 9am-5pm. This will be an all day workshop on plein air painting. I will be covering all of the basics for successful plein air painting and we will be painting outside! Details coming soon but this will be a great chance to get ready for our trip out west!
Cost: $65

April Workshops:
Saturday April 17 1-5 pm *Underpaintings*. If you missed the last workshop on underpaintings, you may want to consider this class. $45
Sunday April 18 1-5 *Miles of Canvas...Jumpstart your personal Challenge*. Start a painting challenge and paint, paint, paint! I will have stations set up for you to try some of the more unusual techniques I used in my miles of canvas challenge. A fun and inspirational workshop!

Master Classes are scheduled for Tuesday April 6th, April 27 and May 18th
Back to Basics class followed by Landscape class will continue every Tuesday from 7-9 pm
