Classes coming up

So I’m going to teach a few pastel classes during Summer 2022 at Ludington Area Center for the Arts.

  • The Beach, Tuesday, June 28, 6-8pm
  • Wildflowers, Tuesday, July 26, 6-8pm
  • Waves, Tuesday, August 23, 6-8pm

To register go to the LACA website or call them during business hours, 231-845-2787.

I’ll bring reference photos for you to use or you can bring your own if you prefer. We’ll be using a warm underpainting — think red, orange and yellow — for each class and working on 8×10″ size sanded paper. All the pastel sticks will be provided. You really only need to bring yourself. I’ll also have a couple of framed pieces to show you how best to display your finished painting.

This’ll be fun! Below are some examples of pastels paintings that I’ve done that fit the theme for each class.
