  • Jim Tyler Intermediate Pastel

    September 30, 2022 - October 1, 2022  
    Art Central, 1329 Monterey St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401, USA

    "Painting a Central Coast Pastoral with Pastels": Intermediate Pastel Workshop with Jim Tyler


    In this workshop, we'll complete a larger, more complex painting over the course of 2 days. We'll cover all of the basics for using pastels; the different kinds of pastel and paper; and how to frame a pastel painting. We'll start with a dry underpainting technique using harder pastels to provide a rich glow. Rather than completing each section one at a time, we'll build up the painting as a whole, and finish using softer pastels. All experience levels welcome.


    When: Friday, September 30th & Saturday October 1st from 10:30am-4:30pm
    Class Fee: $170

    What you should bring (supplies available at Art Central):

    • Your pastel set
      • If you don't have your own pastels, consider a set of Sennelier half sticks, as much as your budget allows.
    • A 16"x20" or 18"x24" sheet of sanded paper (UArt 400-600 grit), and some scrap sanded paper.
      • Attach your paper to foam core using artists tape or clamps
      • [Jim Tyler] will email an example of the sketch for this scene so that everyone can have the drawing done before the workshop starts
      • Optionally, [Jim Tyler] can provide the pre-sketched paper for $30 and you'll just have to bring the mounting board.
    • A rag to wipe your fingers
    • Several packing peanuts or a few paper towels for blending

    To reserve a spot, please inquire about availability and then send a check for $170 to the address below or leave a check with Art Central. PayPal and Venmo also accepted.
