Wildling Museum Workshop

Artist Jim Tyler will lead Painting Big Sur with Pastels workshop at Wildling Museum.

The Wildling Museum presents "Painting Big Sur with Pastels," a 3-hour workshop led by Jim Tyler on June 8 from 1-4 p.m. in the Barbara Goodall Education Center.

This class is for those who are brand new to -- or have some experience -- using pastels and are ready to take the next step.

Attendees will have the chance to complete a pastel painting while learning the basics of handling pastels:

  • how to use the sides, ends and edges of a pastel stick;
  • layering colors;
  • types of pastel paper; brands of pastels and their softness ranking;
  • correcting mistakes;
  • the order of painting the elements of composition;
  • finishing and framing the painting

The workshop includes reference photos and sanded pastel paper with a pre-sketched scene. Pastel sets are available for use during the workshop for an additional fee. Class size is limited to 12 people; suitable for all skill levels ages 18 and up. $65 per person; plus $10 for materials the day of the workshop. E-mail questions to Julie at julie@wildlingmuseum.org.
