Discover the beauty of working with the brilliant colours of dry pastels with signature artist Clarence Porter (PAC, MPAC, PSA). In this full-day beginner’s workshop you will be introduced to the basic techniques and processes for producing a successful pastel. You will also learn elements of colour theory, composition and design, as well as sub-straights, paper surfaces, and the various kinds of pastels.
