In order to find authentic beauty, we must move beyond perfection and dig deep to release the creative souls we were born with! Your pastel paintings will be filled with new energy, dynamic composition, and unique color using simplification, confident strokes, mark making, exaggeration, and negative painting in these fun, intense workshops. Jennifer is known for her 10-minute pastel painting exercises, which her students have come to love! Jen uses a contemporary style that encompasses expressionism, impressionism, and abstraction, working from photo reference of buildings, landscape, cloudscape, and from still life, florals, and plein air sketching. She gives students permission to explore, experiment and play with pastels and unconventional tools, manipulating shapes, design, space, and line, moving beyond local color. Emphasis will be on pastel application, composition, bold color, values, various edges, simplification, and movement. Jen uses demonstration, timed exercises, drawing, painting, one-on-one coaching, group discussion, and critique. Bring an open mind and a willing spirit!
