Instead of painting what we see in a photo or in nature, let’s interpret what we see in a personal way!  We can express how we feel about a landscape through the colors we choose, through selection of details, use of techniques and through our composition which may create harmony….or not!  We’re not just reproducing a scene – we’re creating art with our own spirit! Some experience with pastels is helpful, but beginners are welcome to join in.  Bring your own photo resources or borrow one of ours.

Recommended supply list will be given upon registration

About Nina:  “I spend much of my time out in nature….. from deep woods to flowing water to wetlands.  I feel an immense appreciation for the brilliance and grandeur of God’s creation, along with a naturalists curiosity and an ever-developing sense of interpreting the UNusual in the usual.  I’ve fallen in love with the vibrancy and intuitive expression of using pastels to give life and energy to my paintings.  As a musician, I’m tuned into interpreting sound into something worth hearing.  As an artist, my purpose is in describing  a scene in a way that expresses an emotion worth feeling.
