Starting with the basics of soft pastels and using the work of pastelist Childe Hassam as a case study, we will each recreate some of his famous works over this three day introductory course.
“Childe Hassam was one of the most notable American Impressionists working in the late 1800s and early 1900s. He is also one of the most famous American pastelists.
He exhibited in the fourth, final, show of the Society of Painters in Pastel in New York in 1890. The urban landscape, summer gardens and abstracted night skies all were captured by his hand, working in this medium.”
Day 1. Basic Techniques
On the first day, using still life objects, we will practice basic techniques including; blending, colour mixing, cross hatching, stippling and sgraffito.
Day 2. Landscape
Using the techniques learnt in Day 1, we will each recreate one of Hassam’s famous portraits. Basic landscapers for beginners, to more detailed landscapes for people looking for a refresh.
Day 3. Portrait
In the final session we will recreate one of Hassam’s famous portraits, perfecting the techniques learnt in the previous 2 sessions.
