Back to Basics Weekly Pastel Classes
If you are looking for a fun and supportive class focused on the basics of painting then consider weekly pastel class. Classes run in four week sessions and we will work on a new painting concept and pastel technique during each session. Some of the topics we will work on this Fall are Skies and Clouds, Discovering a Series, Painting in the style of several contemporary Master Pastelists and in December we will study the painting of Winter Landscapes. I am excited about these classes and can't wait to get started!
I will be offering the same class on Wednesday morning 10:00 - 12:00 and Wednesday evening 7:00 - 9:00.
Currently there are openings in the morning class. The Spring session begins March 20 2013

"Thanks so much for a wonderful experience. I learned a GREAT deal by watching your demo and hearing you speak about basics. The folder of information was so helpful. You're a great teacher!" sr
"I just wanted to drop you a note and thank you again for the wonderful experience at your workshops this past weekend. First of all it was wonderful meeting you and seeing your beautiful work first hand. The workshops were so worthwhile and opened my eyes to how limited I have been. My world has now been expanded in many ways, including techniques/styles and papers and pastels." jp
I discovered Karen's art work a little over two years ago and immediately fell in love with her painting techniques and subject matter. I soon discovered that she conducted workshops on pastel painting and even though I live about 4 hours away have attended a number of her workshops. Karen conducts her workshops in a very professional manner that makes experienced artists, as well as beginners feel comfortable with her teaching methods. I recently signed up for a scheduled workshop with Karen and also a private lesson, both of which were very, very beneficial to me.
I have purchased several of Karen's paintings and hope to purchase additional paintings from her in the future, as well as participate in future workshops.
I highly recommend Karen as an instructor and as an artist. J.
I have have the pleasure of taking pastel classes with Karen Margulis. She has a background in fine art, teaching and is passionate about Pastels as shown in her commitment to the medium. What I love most about Karen besides how nice she is, is that she is so giving of everything she has learned about Pastels. I know she reads many pastel book, goes to shows, and takes part in many workshops by some of the top Pastel Artists in the country. She shares all she learns and you get the best of all her investment and time she spent in learning. I have personally grown so much as an artist and have come so far in my skill set with Karen. I was always a good artist but after only a few classes she taught me so many things about color theory and value and how it can make such a difference in your painting. I have become a better artist because of her. If you are looking to take some classes, I highly recommend Karen's classes. You won't be sorry.
