Artists of all levels of pastel experience are welcome in this class.

In Pastel Painting Techniques students will be introduced to the versatile, very forgiving, pastel medium using a still life set up. Different brands of pastels, types of paper, different application methods and a variety of underpainting techniques will be explored. There will be an emphasis on design, composition, draftsmanship, color and values. Information regarding framing, storage of pastels and pastel paintings, and organizing pastels for portability and studio work will be given.
This class will work on the student’s skills of observation, learning to see with an artist’s eye and translating that into personal expression.

If you are a new student to this class there is a special 25% discount available if you register before Saturday Sept 8th. Call 516-558-7367 or email us at admin@teachingstudios for details.

    Jane is a fabulous artist and wonderful teacher. She is not only very knowledgeable but also very patient in passing this knowledge on to her students. Despite her professionalism (Master Pastelist and Master Circle) she continues to attend workshops to introduce her students to different methods. Would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning pastel painting.

    Jane is an amazing artists and instructor. She has a very wise and calm approach. In the past year I have learned so much from her and my pastel work has vastly improved. The class has the warmness of old friends getting together and yet Jane is able to impart an incredible amount of instruction. She herself continues to strive to learn more and try new techniques and encourages her students to do the same.

    Jane is a fantastic artist and teacher. I had never done pastel before working in class with Jane. Under her guidance, pastel has become a passion for me. Her expert use of color opened my eyes to an unseen beauty in nature. Jane does excellent demonstrations in class which are very helpful as part of a learning process. She is an encouraging teacher and is sensitive to the frustrations of her students. The class is friendly and supportive. It is a peaceful, pleasant atmosphere…the best 3 hours of my week!

    I have taken Jane’s class for several years and find her to be a caring and motivating teacher. I could not have achieved the work I have done in class without her helpful instruction.

    I really enjoy this class. I’d never painted with pastels before but now I’m hooked! Jane is an inspiring instructor (she introduces us to artists & ideas through books, magazines, video & more) as well as an accomplished artist. I’m so glad that a friend of mine (taking her class this summer) told me what a great class this is!
