Pastel Work Shop on September 22, 2018

Hello friends, fans, and family,

I will be hosting a pastel workshop at the Dublin Roasters coffee shop in Frederick, MD on September 22, 2018, from 1-3 pm. Here is a link to the website, in case you need directions: http://www.dublinroasterscoffee.com.

The cost per person is $25 and it includes a live demonstration about how to create a dramatic still life in pastels. Using a step by step approach, I will teach you how to create a masterpiece in pastels. All supplies for the class are provided by me, including pastels and paper. The subject will be a carafe and onions with chiaroscuro lighting similar to the old master, Rembrandt. Seating is limited so email me asap if you are interested. I will be reserving a small room in the back of the coffee shop, Room 1. To register, email me at jsjschmidt2@gmail.com. You can pay for the class the day of the event, by cash or check.  Beginners are welcome! Come on down! pastel still life with onions and carafe1
