This jam-packed day workshop is located at the Dakota art workshop facility. No other place can you experiment more with the latest of pastel surfaces and products. The class will cover the bones of creating great landscapes while encouraging you to explore different techniques on different pastel surfaces to create unique effects. Learn how to really see and analyze your work with a more confident eye. All of Amanda’s classes are grounded in design and composition and have a balanced mix of theory, technique and experimentation. Amanda likes her students to try many different surfaces and techniques to expand their creative repertoire. With a strong focus on landscape, Amanda will demonstrate painting skies, trees and sky holes as well as how to create mood, emotion and atmosphere in your work. Daily demos, experimentation and plenty of individual instruction. A combination of studio and plein air.
