A 2-Day Pastel Workshop
with Katie Cassidy
Friday March 17 and Saturday March 18, 2023
10:15 AM – 5:00 PM
The workshop is full but you can be placed on the wait list. See below!
Katie’s painting style and palette differs from Tracy Wilson. As a result, a few changes to the workshop would be as follows:
Katie will NOT be doing any underpainting exercises, so the wet media supplies will not be needed. All participants will be working from life, no iPads or iPhones. Stand up easels are highly encouraged. Please add a viewfinder to your current supply list. The same box and lighting set up will used as demonstrated by Tracy in her ZOOM meeting this past Saturday. Katie recommends a 100w bulb for your clip lamp along with an extension cord. Bring lunch/snacks for a break at 12:30-1:15 for both days. Bring a variety of non-fragile items for your still life set ups as there will be several opportunities paint different compositions. Due to Library 21C rules, we need to breakdown our work set ups at the end of the day on Friday. A comprehensive critique of your work from Friday (3/17), will be held on Saturday morning at 10am in the B6 conference room of Library 21C. After the critiques, we will reset our work area in the Create a Space Room. Katie will distribute several handouts, so a notebook/sketchbook would be helpful.
