About the event
Portraits need to feel alive. The duty of an artist is to not only capture the likeness of the subject but also to breath live onto the page by capturing the moment. When your formal portraits feel dead and stodgy you need to break out and rediscover the joy in sketching: there you will find the immediacy of the pastel medium. Using PanPastels and Sofft tools Corey Pitkin will guide students through his methods for using PanPastel as a sketching tool. Photo reference will be provided.
