About the event
Childhood is over in the blink of an eye. As parents and caretakers we watch children grow and evolve into the people they will eventually become. As artists we have the opportunity to honor these tender moments. In this exclusive online workshop Corey Pitkin PSA, IAPS-MC will show you how he captures the quiet moments of a child's inner life. While Corey demonstrates his pastel techniques he will discuss photography topics such as staging a scene in your home, working with children in a photoshoot, and how to choose a photo to paint from, and much more. Corey will demonstrate using a full-color pastel palette working from a photograph. The photo reference will be provided or you can choose your own to work from.
