About the event
This is a zoom workshop from 9am till 4pm with 1 hour for lunch each day. Dawn requests that the participants keep video on during the class for more of the face-on experience.
This class offers the opportunity to try many of the techniques and ideas presented in Dawn's
book, Pastel Innovations, plus approaches developed since the book was written. During this
fast paced class there will be many short demos followed immediately by time to apply each
technique shown. The focus of the class is to learn new ways to incorporate PanPastels with
traditional soft stick pastel to include nuances of opacity and transparent color in your work.
