Instructor: Kevin McCarty

In-person at VPC Campus

Pastel paints have been used by artists since the Renaissance to quickly apply rich, intense color to various surfaces without the need for paintbrushes, solvents, or a palette. The only supplies you need to produce a painting are charcoal pencil, pastel paint, pastel paper, and your fingers! The technique used to layer and blend the colors on a surface is what will make your creation come alive and shine. Professional grade pastels, archival paper, and any other supplies will be provided.
