Next Class- Pastel Portraits for Beginners

Classes

The next class I’ll be teaching at Tulpehocken Exchange is Pastel Portraits for Beginners. I’ll be teaching participants the basics of using chalk pastels and the basics of drawing one of the hardest subjects- humans. We’ll be learning proportion of the face, blending and application methods with pastels, using light and dark, and more!

Below is the flyer with information on date/time/space. It’s hosted at Tulpehocken Exchange, a new art space in Germantown, Philadelphia located at 47 East High Street. The cost is $40 per person. Sliding scale payment is available on an as-needed basis. Email info@handmadephilly.com to register. You can RSVP on Facebook by clicking HERE.

Here is a quick pastel portrait I put together of Adam Driver (one of the many husband’s I have in the harem in my mind) as an example of what we’ll be learning in the class.

New Arts Space in Germantown, Philadelphia!

Classes

I recently announced that I was partnering with  Handmade Philly at a new physical arts space in Germantown, Philadephia to teach art classes. Today I had a chance to visit the space for the first time. Tuplehocken Exchange is a new space that houses a dance studios, art studios, and the new space for Handmade Philly. I met some of the lovely women who are working hard to make the new space come together.

IMG_5516The space itself is in a storied stone building. It is near the old Germantown High School and down the street from a big, beautiful Unitarian church. Check out the slideshow of the building and space below!
