AUGUST - Waves Pastel Workshop with Ann Steer (Subiaco)

**BOOKED OUT** 

Waves and Foamy Suds at the Shore Workshop

Jacksons Subiaco Store
Saturday 24th August
1:00pm to 4:00pm
Cost: $65/pp
Bookings are secured at time of payment at store. Material list is provided on booking.

The one-day workshop provides an opportunity to spend the day focusing on pastel painting and caters to a range of different skill levels.  My classes start from a position of encouraging students to paint in their own style.  I strongly encourage people to view images and translate what they see in their own special way.  I am passionate about colour and will show you how to use it to enhance your work.  I will encourage you to try new things, and push your out of your comfort zone by experimenting with new techniques.  As a teacher I am generous in sharing knowledge and provide you with live demonstrations. Above all, this is a class to have fun painting what we are passionate about. Whether you're looking to improve on already-existing skills or just dip your toe into something new, the workshop program provides a relaxed happy environment to learn about pastel painting.

At each workshop I will begin by giving a demonstration and then you will commence on your own piece.  I will continue to guide you throughout the course of the workshop.  I have many photographs that you can choose from for your inspiration or alternatively please feel free to bring your own photograph.

--

I will begin this workshop by giving a demonstration on how to create waves from large crashing waves, bright summer barrel waves and little rolling waves against the shore. You will see how easy it is to make your shoreline come alive by creating foamy suds, wet and dry sand with footprints.

What you will need:
Bring your pastels! A sheet of colourfix pastel paper can be purchased on the day at Jacksons.

FAQ’s

How will I know what to paint?  That is easy, I bring a folder full of images and you get to choose your own image and if you prefer bring something from home to paint.

Do I need to bring anything to class? I provide easels, boards and tape, you will need to bring your own pastels, pastel paper can be purchased on the day at the shop.  Also it pays to bring some baby wipes to clean your hands as we all end up looking like pastel warriors at the end of the day with it all over our faces!
