What's Included

Render the beauty of light and landscape in this three-day pastel intensive. From basic to advanced techniques, master pastel artist and longtime Ah Haa visiting instructor Bruce Gomez will share his own unique approach to painting landscapes from photographs. Students will learn how to layer colors for a deep, lush effect and how to convey authenticity and luminosity through the immediacy of pastels. Bruce will teach students how to prepare paper for pastels, develop sketching and scenic composition skills, and understand color theory. This class is open to all levels of experience, from true beginners to established pros. (If you are a rank beginner, worry not, Bruce will provide lots of hand holding to beginners and all who run into walls of uncertainty or doubt!) All participants will gain technical skills and creative growth to continue painting with pastels on their own. Please bring an iPad in addition to the posted materials list, contact Ah Haa if you do not have one. Students should wear good walking shoes, layered clothing, sunscreen and bug repellent. Students should bring a lunch or snack. If you are traveling from out of town for this class and would like help finding accommodations, please contact Ah Haa at 970.728.3886
