Pastel Camp Rescheduled!
October 30, 2021
1609 W LIttleton Blvd, Littleton, CO
GREAT NEWS! The 1-day introductory pastel workshop cancelled in March 2020 due to COVID has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 30, 9 am - 4 pm at the First Presbyterian Church of Littleton (1609 W LIttleton Blvd). The Camp's lead instructor will be Karen Spotts, with assistance from a team of other accomplished pastel artists.

This is a perfect workshop for beginning pastel painters, as well as those who wish to brush up on the fundamentals. Instruction will include demonstrations and hands on exercises. Participants will experiment with applying pastels to a variety of painting surfaces. They will explore the basics of composition (color, shapes, and values) as they sketch and create a pastel painting.

Previously registered Camp participants have already had a chance to confirm their interest in this rescheduled workshop. Space is available for 14 more! New enrollees may register for the Camp using the button below.

WHO: Beginning Pastel Artists (doesn't matter how many years you might have been involved in the medium; if you still consider yourself a beginner, you are welcome)

COST: $10 materials fee (pastels, paper and handouts) plus processing fees (.28)

  • Our On-Site Show Judge and Online Juror - Deborah Bays
    My medium of choice is pastel and my style is informed by my years as a theater artist and the chiaroscuro tradition of the Dutch Masters. My work has been featured in art publications and I exhibit paintings in galleries nationwide. I have been awarded Master Pastelist status by the Pastel Society of America. It is with great pleasure that I have returned to the Art Students League of Denver to teach classical drawing and painting. Please visit her website at
