This is more a retreat that a class. Set in the rolling countryside amidst gardens and vistas, at Studio on the Knoll (, this light-filled barn/studio is a perfect place to let your creativity juice flow and feel like you’ve gotten away all at the same time. We are planning a catered meet & greet the evening before and a catered dinner during the workshop for a premium experience. Create colorful water reflections and brilliant clouds in pastel with this award-winning artist and instructor! This 3 day workshop will be a great mix of theory, technique and experimentation. Amanda will share her knowledge of pastels and how to use different techniques on different surfaces to achieve great results. You will have the option to create your own surface by painting a sanded gesso to a board or metal. Expect daily demos, loosening-up exercises, and plenty of individual instruction at your easel for you to learn these techniques with your own subject matter and materials. Packed full of good design principles to make ANY painting successful. Some experience in pastel is necessary.
