Evocative Painting
Pastels With Shelly Eager

In this workshop, Shelly will teach you many of the principles you can employ to help you take your paintings from merely representational to emotional, from mechanical to responsive. Through carefully crafted exercises you will visually see how the various elements of a painting can create different emotional responses in the viewer. You will learn how to respond to your image versus copying your image, thereby creating more expressive work. These activities will be eye opening and become your creative workhorses.
