Spend a great weekend exploring soft pastels! The workshop will cover materials, surfaces, matting and framing, and basic characteristics of pastels as well as a variety of approaches to your work. We will experiment with textures, underpainting, resists and other more experimental approaches beyond the traditional soft pastel application. There will be some quick demonstrations but plenty of work time and one on one instruction.
Diane has a degree in Art from Graceland University, Lamoni, Iowa and an MFA from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in Boston, Massachusetts. After 38 years of teaching in the public schools, she “retired” to focus on her own work. Diane’s work has been featured in many juried and one person shows around the Midwest. The subject matter of her oil paintings and pastels is usually pulled from nature and often examines the subtle nuances a busy society might typically miss – how water flows over and between river rocks or beads up on the leaf of a lily pad. The founders of a private non-profit, The Least of These Foundation, partnered with Kunzler Studios to bring art experiences to individuals facing cognitive, physical, emotional, or financial challenges. This partnership led us to our new location at 324 5th Street in Historic Valley Junction, West Des Moines, Iowa. Diane serves as the education expert for Kunzler Studios.
