Still Life Pastels Workshop
Saturday, Feb 17th, 9am-noon
Instructor: Stacey Fletcher Reynolds
Create a unique and realistic pastel study from natural objects from life. In this workshop, you will learn to focus on objects in a still life, and learning to draw what you “see”, not what you know. Using the pastel medium, you will learn fundamentals of layering, mixing color, and utilizing value to create a 3-deminsional form. The workshop will include a demo and individual guidance, and you will not only leave with a pastel study, but also knowledge to create on your own. All supplies are provided; open to participants 16 and older. $70 (members) / $76 (future members)
About the Instructor:
Stacey Fletcher received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Drawing from The University of Tennessee in 2003, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Valdosta State University in 2000. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in many individual, group, and juried exhibitions. She recently moved her family to Daytona Beach to take a position as an Assistant Professor of Studio Arts at Daytona State College. As a cathartic painter, Stacey’s work expresses emotions and frustrations that would otherwise be hard to express verbally. They seem abstract at first glace to the viewer, but have some sense of childhood imagery disguised among the colorful layers. Her work is fresh with vibrant lively colors, with layered metaphors of herself and others contrasted with the chaotic approach of the energetic marks.
