3-DAY WORKSHOP - MARCH 24, 25 & 26, 2023, 1-4pm

Art Center Morro Bay is happy to present a 3-day, soft pastel workshop with award- winning artist Greg Trombly. Focusing on basic composition, drawing techniques, color and value, this course is designed to provide hands-on guidance to students in a relaxed atmosphere. Students will learn how to incorporate contrasting shadows cast from sunlit skies along various rocky shorelines, to fields dotted with floral wonder. Trombly will provide an introduction to pastels, surface varieties and how to choose subject matter, with a short demonstration to begin each day.

Students are encouraged to bring a reference photo of a flowery field, a sunset and/or shoreline, for these classes. Images are available upon request. This workshop is designed for beginner to advanced.
