Revel in the pleasure of subtle mark-making as you explore a variety of pastel painting techniques. Through drawing and finger painting, we will  create this expressive painting of spring trees that conveys the feeling of being “right there”. Knowing how to "draw" is not necessary; just bring a willingness to experience color and shape. We will finish a painting which can stand alone or serve as a seed of inspiration for your next painting project.  Spring is just around the corner!
