Friday, March 4, 2011

9:00 - 3:30

LOCATION: Rockdale, TX

Beginner to Advanced

$85 *

If you've been interested in learning how to use pastel, or just want to try some new techniques, this one-day workshop is for you!

For beginners, Rita will take the mystery and mess out of pastel by explaining the 3 basic 'rules' of pastel use, and will demonstrate the step-by-step process for creating a clean, vibrant pastel painting. More advanced students will benefit from Rita's 30+ years of experience with pastel, and have the opportunity to experiment with new techniques. Instruction will emphasize accurate values, color harmony, and good composition through strategic cropping and placement of elements. Individual attention will be given.

Contact the Rockdale Chamber of Commerce to register.

Supply list provided with registration.


* Fee includes continental breakfast, snacks and lunch. Attendees are also invited to the Artists/Authors dinner reception Friday evening, and are eligible for 20% off a booth at the Tejas Art Fest on Saturday, to show and sell their own work! Contact the Rockdale Chamber for details.
