Land, Sky and Water in Pan Pastels with artist Joan Applebaum, August 4th-6th, 11:30-1:30pm

Pan Pastels have all the beauty and vibrant color of traditional pastels, but are a lot less messy! These soft, highly pigmented colors are blended, layered and applied like paint. You will love the subtle way the colors blend as you capture light effects on the water and billowing clouds sweep it through the sky. There will be ample time to experiment with color blending techniques before you begin your painting. $72 YMCA Members and the Art Park Members $144 Non–Members
