Painting is learning to see.  Often, we paint what we think we see because we all have  preconceived notions of what something looks like.  However, to really paint what you see, you must break down everything you are looking at into just abstract shapes.  Don’t see a “house”, see a series of interlocking shapes.

Working from their own photo references, students will transform these into pastel paintings using the principles of color and design.  Aline will emphasize the understanding of color in terms of temperature, intensity and value while translating those ideas using pastel technique.

As this will be a zoom workshop, Aline will start with a demo each day.  Students will then work on their paintings and she will individually work with each them as they progress.
