MORE THAN JUST A "PRETTY PAINTING"

PASTEL WORKSHOP with GEORGIE BEMIS


MAY 4, 5, & 6 (Thurs - Sat), 2017

9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.


Explore a different technique using pastel as an undercoat, blocking in and building on abstract shapes instead of drawing everything.  Learn WHY you choose the subject you choose and WHY you choose the method you use to get the results you want.  

Georgie Bemis is an Albuguerque, NM artist who has worked in pastels since 1992.  Prior to that she worked in oils and watercolor and has been teaching for over 30 years.
