Purpose: To teach adults who would like to learn the basics of pastel painting/drawing.
Goals: This course is structured to help participants learn how to apply color and value through the use of soft pastels to their art.
Expectations: Each participant is expected to come with an open mind to instruction, the ability to ‘let go’ and try new techniques outside their comfort zone, and to be able to relax. We may end with a painting or two that you will be very pleased with. Class will start punctually to maximize every minute available.
Instructors Statement: Mary Jean (Jeannie) Davis has over thirty years teaching experience in the public schools and has taught private lessons in her home and at Longview Museum of Fine Arts. She works primarily in soft pastels and has had work accepted in National and International shows from Cape Cod, to Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Most recently she has two pieces that have been juried into the Arkansas Pastel Society’s show in Little Rock, Arkansas and The Nine Muses show at the R.W. Norton Gallery in Shreveport, Louisiana.
