Pastel Class, with Margaret Ferraro

Monday, August 25 to Thursday, August 28 (four classes)
10 am to 4:30 pm

In this advanced workshop, participants will have the opportunity to develop their pastel skills, and to work on elements of visual expression, such as colour and composition.

Ottawa-based artist, Margaret Ferraro, is a sought-after teacher and widely exhibited artist, both in Canada and the United States. She has participated in high profile shows including the Pastel Society of America exhibition at the National Art Club in New York City. In her work, Ferraro continuously moves between landscape, figural, and floral subjects, using a layering technique that incorporates a combination of charcoal, ink, acrylic paint, and pastels. Texture and colour are the major factors in her compositions.

Please note: A half-hour lunch break is included. Please bring your own lunch.
