Learn how to paint with chalk!

with Michael Burge 
Join our autumn featured artist for a fun day with chalk pastel techniques. You’ll learn how to achieve depth of colour and tone for traditional or abstract works. The cost includes use of pastels and paper on the day, or bring your own! Bring an apron… chalk pastels are dusty and you’ll be using aerosol fixative, so if you’re sensitive to hairspray, bring your own face mask too. This is one of the most misunderstood mediums, come and see how it’s done!
When: Saturday May 30, 2020, 10am-3pm

Cost: $100 (includes use of paper and pastels on the day)
