Soft pastel is the purest medium for painting with vibrant colors, ability to blend or layer, and a variety of strokes and techniques. In this four-part virtual class, explore color, texture, and design to create beautiful finished paintings. Review the pastel medium and tools, color theory, and design; focus on individual expression; and use creative interpretations for paintings.

Instructor Terrilynn Dubreuil has over 30 years’ experience encouraging people of all ages and abilities to realize they can be creative with helpful techniques and energy. With an undergraduate degree and graduate studies in fine art, she teaches most media through approaches that help newbies to more experienced artists, and everyone in between.
