This workshop is designed for digital photographers, at all levels, who seek a contemplative approach to creating images.  A series of exercises will be offered to engage the senses, analyze light and consider the issues of a well-conceived photographic composition.  Digital images will be loaded onto a computer for sharing and group reflection.

“Pastel Painting; Discovering your Artistic Spirit”

Five day workshop at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico. May 17th-21st, 2017

All levels welcome!  DETAILS on pricing, lodging, and additional information.

I aspire to the teaching methodology of, “describe, demonstrate, DO!”. Thus, in this workshop, we will explore the art of pastel painting through short demonstrations which emphasize a particular principle followed by a guided exercise and gentle critique. Students will enjoy discussions about materials, value & color, mark making techniques, generating sketches/notan, composition, and learning a progression for the structure of a painting.
