Juror and Awards Judge: DAWN EMERSON
Dawn grew up in Marblehead, Massachusetts. After graduating from Brown University with a BA in English/Minor in Art in 1977, she began a career in graphic design and illustration. She became a book designer and art director for an educational publisher in the Boston area, until leaving to head west with her young family and husband in 1985. It was in Salt Lake City she discovered a passion for teaching art to children, and she continued teaching in the public schools after moving to Central Oregon in 1991. In 1992 she discovered the medium of pastel, and began taking workshops with well known pastel artists Sheila Reiman, Harley Brown, Albert Handell, Sally Strand, and others. By 1997 she was winning major awards for her pastel work, writing articles for various art publications, and teaching her own workshops. Dawn has spent the past 26 years creating art, teaching, and experimenting in her Central Oregon studio to push the boundaries of the pastel medium. In 2008 Dawn was introduced to printmaking by mentor Pat Clark. Printmaking led to new and exciting directions for Dawn's art expression and inspired the writing of a book titled "Pastel Innovations" in 2017 by NorthLight Publishers. Three new dvds were also produced by NorthLight, making a total of 6 instructional dvds now available. Dawn's work has been exhibited in many national exhibits, and is available through the Mockingbird Gallery in Bend, OR. Dawn is sought after as an art judge, workshop instructor, and inspiring demonstrator. Her passion is to help people find their own voice with art and to continue to grow as an artist.

PSC Workshop: Pastel Society Fall Workshop: Painting the Landscape Artist, Cliff Austin
November 16, 2019
Location:RMCAD (Shore art building on campus)
November 16, 10am-4pm
Price: $60
Audience; all levels

Description: The core of Cliff's art is the relationship of light on shape using line and tone and color as it wraps and flows around the landscape and cityscape and figures. Colorful, impressionistic, and sometimes very abstract are used to describe his work. He is an award winning Colorado artist.

We're very fortunate to have one of our own members, Cliff, to offer an in depth one day workshop.

Cliff is a seasoned painter with many years of experience. He has affiliation with many Colorado art organizations such as the Pastel Society of Colorado, the Plein Air Artists of Colorado, the Oil Painters of America and the American Impressionists Society.

Cliff's demeanor is very upbeat and fun. He will teach you how to develop an underpainting, apply layers of pastel to it and take it to a finished painting. In addition you will learn and practice composition, value, and edge control.
