University Art San Jose Presents
Exploring Soft Pastels
with Cindy Shih
Saturday, August 29th
11am - 1pm
Come join us for an introduction to the history of Sennelier soft pastels, started in 1887 in France by Gustave Sennelier who saw the need of unique colors and hues for the rising Impressionists. In addition, the topics covered will be general setup, how to decide on paper surfaces, approaches to color, and finally drawing and painting techniques with pastels. Participants will be able to try our samples of paper and pastels.
Attendees can bring a sketchbook for notes or their own set of pastels.
