12 Easels + 1

 It was three days with 12 artists at their easels…and pastelist Tina Moore leading a workshop for the Pleasanton Art League…plus more pastel sticks with names like Terry Ludwig, Great American, Rembrandt, Girault, Sennelier, and NuPastel.  Setting aside time to devote to learn new techniques, exchange art ideas, experiment with new materials, and get individual attention while working on a painting is the strength of attending an art workshop with an accomplished artist.  Tina was especially good at one-on-one coaching at the easel.

I have been fortunate to have attended some great workshops in the last few years with Clark Mitchell, Kim Lordier, Terri Ford, Teresa Saia, and Doug Dawson in pastel and Bryan Mark Taylor, Sylvia Miller, Joyce Faulknor, and Susan Cornelis in a variety of  media.  Some have met on location in vineyards, arid hillsides, by a river, or in the studio. Why so many workshops?  I am workshop chair for my art league which now hosts three workshops a year. It’s my job.  So many of the skills of one media are relevant to other media.  It’s all ART!
