Join pastel artist, Susan Roden, for this four-day exploration of the unique properties of the light in New Mexico. We will focus on rendering the brilliant light found in the white clouds in a clear, blue sky as well as the dramatic light beneath a storm cloud or descending sunset. 

Pastel is the perfect medium to work back and forth with brilliant color depicting these unique aspects of light in the desert. The basics of this dry, vibrant medium will be discussed in-depth through individual instruction and demonstrations, during three in-studio and one in-field days, as weather permits. Emphasis will be placed on technique, rendering compositions, creating stark contrasts, and varied stroking methods. This workshop is designed for artists at all levels. Please sign up early; class size is limited to 12 students.
