Celebrate the beauty of still-life arrangements of flowers, vases, and personal objects while learning to improve your handling of pastels. Professional artist Maria Reardon will offer basic instruction to people with some drawing experience as well as help for experienced pastel artists. Plan to bring an ample supply of pastels (supply list provided), your own treasured objects, and favorite flowers. Maria will demonstrate from start to finish how to work with a few or many objects as you create beautiful forms with light, shadows, and reflections. Maria is an accomplished plein air and studio artist who exhibits her pastels in Virginia and Maryland.
