I offer pastel workshops periodically throughout the year. Check out my most recent offering to get an idea of what’s to come!
1-day workshop at Forstall Art Center, Birmingham, AL
Offered last Spring on a Saturday, 10:00-4:00
$85, supplies needed, lunch included
Moving beyond the traditional light and smooth pastel drawings to vibrant, textured soft pastel paintings, you will discover a new side to working with soft pastels.
Join us Saturday, April 12 from 10:00-4:00, and learn how to beautifully layer soft pastels, achieving great results that will have people guessing your medium!
We will work on techniques for both large and miniature pastel paintings, creating two finished pieces.
With minimal supplies, this class is perfect for beginners and experienced pastelists. For best results with these techniques, high quality soft pastels and a textured surface are recommended.
Subject matter will be provided, but feel free to bring your own landscape references.
Minimum of 24 SOFT pastels (most highly recommended: Sennelier soft pastels, or a similar type)
11×14 Ampersand Pastelbord or 11×14 piece of Sennelier La Carte pastel card
4×4 – 5×7 Ampersand Pastelbord or piece of Sennelier La Carte pastel card

Shows & Workshops
I regularly participate in area art shows, including the Moss Rock Festival, and all shows affiliated with the Birmingham Art Association and the Mountain Brook Art Association. As part of the Eclectic Art Social Club, my art colleagues and I put on several private shows each year, such as our Parkside Show, “Eclectic Cool: the Colors of Calm.” & our group show at Rojo.
After years of offering group pastel classes at Hobby Lobby and Forstall Art Center, I am currently only offering one-day workshops. (Ah, motherhood!)
Over the past few years, I have given workshops and demonstrations at the Hoover Public Library, the Birmingham Art Association, Forstall Art Center, and the Alabaster Senior Center.
