Learning from masterful examples, students will practice traditional drawing techniques to convey a variety of smooth and rough, reflective, transparent and shiny surfaces with the matte medium of pastels.

The chosen subject is the food piece as depicted by 17th and 18th-centuries European artists. From crumbly bread to fuzzy peaches and melting cheese, to representing silver, copper, basketry willow, linen, glass and ceramic, students will learn to depict from life a humble peasant meal or a lavish banquet piece with pastels.
