Students can work from life or from their own photograph. Approaches discussed will include realistic, impressionistic and abstract. Materials will be discussed during the first class. Please bring a sketchpad, 9 X 12 or larger, a sheet of MiTienes Canson Paper or sandpaper (any manufacturer), kneadable eraser and a semi-hard black and white pastel (such as a Prismacolor's Nupastels).
