Pastel Artists


The Pastel Artist Group meets on the first and third Monday of each month, at 9 AM in the SRAL Studio. The pastel group will have their next session on December 18th, but not on January 1st (New Year’s Day). The following session will be on January 15th.

The goals of the group are to help new artists become adept at using pastels, experiment with new materials and techniques, apply our skills to the opportunities offered in the other special art groups, offer new challenges to our advanced pastel artists, and basically have fun.

The intent of the group is to encourage the use of pastels as a tried-and-true method of expression; to attract new artists to the vibrant world of pastels and help them enjoy the ease and beauty of this form of art; and to broaden the array of techniques of advanced artists.

We have a number of excellent pastelists and individuals in our group, who have worked as illustrators and/or graphic artists, who are willing to help others and to share their skills.

Linda Sparks presented a demo at our December 4th pastel session on a technique for creating animals on velour, based upon teachings by Lesley Harrison. How fortunate we are to have members share their knowledge and experience with our group.
