Pastel Classes

Kathleen Hanney
Pastel Class

Whether it’s private instruction or specific group classes I love to teach pastel technique to every level of experience. I have enjoyed teaching art for more than forty years and ten of those years have been devoted to pastels in all of their glory!

I believe that every person has their own unique way of applying pastel to paper and I seek to foster that unique voice in each student that can be developed with instruction in how to use the medium.

Time to take your pastels and go outside and paint
Plein Air with Kathleen Hanney

Spring is here and we can venture out again to paint in the open air and
natural light! Nothing teaches you about color like painting and observing
it out of doors. I will be teaching four consecutive classes on how to paint
“plein air” with pastels. If the weather does not cooperate, the first class
will meet in my studio and we will go over the basics of painting outdoors
for anyone new to plein air painting and/or people who need to brush up
on the techniques. After that we will meet on location each Saturday, with
rain dates if necessary. Hopefully we can catch the Magnolias in bloom at
Highland Park before the festival starts!

Sharing  the  Experience

Color, Mood – Painting in Pastels  with Kathleen Hanney

I  want to share my passion about how to use pastels to create on paper the story that you want your paintings to convey. Learn how to transfer the feelings that inspired you to paint your landscape to your paper by using the pastel techniques of layering color that will have your paintings breathing with the life and energy that you intended to share. It’s important to know the basics in the technique of the medium and principles in designing your composition – then you get to have fun with color, texture and the luminosity that is hallmark of pastel painting.

I’d love to beat the January blahs in the studio with you!

Keeping it Simple with Kathleen Hanney

Fresh from  a workshop with Stan Sperlak this August, where I painted the plein air piece above I am excited to offer class this fall for people interested in the passion of landscape painting in pastels. I want to share the“capturing the moment” aspect of my work with an emphasis on value, color and layering technique, all of which bring life to your work.   This is an opportunity to learn to develop the mood ( I believe “the soul” of a piece) or story that you want to tell in your own painting.

Weather permitting we will paint outdoors for at least one class! Basic instruction will be done in my studio. I am really looking forward to this class, but class size is limited due to space consideration in the studio. Hope you can make it!  Any questions, feel free to get in touch at my email listed below.
