NEW!! Workshop July 28 & 29, 2018

Dawn Emerson’s Studio, Terrebonne, Oregon

Bold Strokes ~ Light Touch 

This unique workshop will introduce Denali Brooke and Vasili Katakis, two artists with distinct styles of pastel painting. The first day will begin with gestural mark-making and broken color. The second day will rely on a more classical approach, using refined techniques to advance mood and luminosity.  Students will paint along to experience a deeper understanding in the use of their techniques, from first strokes  to finishing touches.  They will benefit from this workshop by finding their own place along the continuum of styles, classical to impressionism; painterly to refined.
