About this workshop

Spend the weekend with Stephie Clark and immerse yourself in creating bright, loose florals with pastel.

What will I learn?

Each day of the workshop, Stephie demonstrates exactly how she makes a painting from scratch, demonstrating techniques for her backgrounds and applying pastels with freedom and thoughtfulness.

You will paint from life as well as photos and discuss the differences. Stephie not only wants you to come away with some successful works, but also the confidence, knowledge and skills to keep practicing at home.

Each workshop participant will grow in experience and be able to apply skills that are relevant for their own artistic voice.

Stephie will guide you in creating beautiful pastel flower paintings.
