The Beauty of Imperfection with Jen Evenhus
6/23/2017 - 6/25/2017
Cheyenne WY LCCC campus
THERE IS ONE CANCELLATION SO THERE IS STILL ROOM FOR 1 NEW STUDENT! (POSTED JUNE 19)

Be brave while exploring your inner voice, letting go of perfection and playing with a variety of materials to create bold expressive works of art as we step fearlessly into the unknown. Using timed exercises to loosen up and reveal your innate intuition forces us to use bold strokes with wild abandon, creating happy little accidents and mark-making that reveal your personal style.
Students will work with landscape photos provided by instructor, with your own photo reference, and with still life objects. Along with a good variety of soft and hard pastels, and good sanded pastel paper, other materials like ink, markers, brushes and graphite will be used. We will use contemporary impressionist, expressionist, and abstract styles as we explore shapes, composition, positive and negative space, bold vs neutral color and mark-making.
There will be challenging exercises, instructor demos, one-on-one coaching, critiques, discussions, and painting throughout this intense fun 3-day workshop with PSA Master Pastelist Jen Evenhus. Come with an open mind and willing spirit! A $100 non-refundable deposit will be required to hold your spot
with full payment due by April 30, 2017.

Capturing the Light in the Pastel Landscape with Clive Tyler
7/21/2017 - 7/23/2017
Evergreen Fire Protection Center
3 day class
Capturing the Light in the Pastel Landscape

In this class we will explore impressionism and abstraction style while creating representational landscapes filled with light. Daily demonstrations will touch on underpainting techniques, color theory, and back painting techniques that add mood and emotion into the painting. The goal is always to expand on photographs to create landscapes that are rich and painterly by using edges, bold strokes and color to bring freshness to each painting. We will work two days from photographs provided by the workshop participants and one day, weather permitting, we will work en plein air. Throughout the workshop we will practice creating, not duplicating, as we work to capture the essence of the scene in a way that expands your potential as an artist.

The 3 day workshop is to be held July 21-23, 2017. The price of the workshop is $330 for current PSC members. Non-members cost is $375. Registration opens on April 1 at http://pastelsocietyofcolorado.org/shows.php.

Workshop: Clive Tyler will teach a 3 day workshop in conjunction with the exhibit.
