Milton Arts Guild offers four-part Soft Pastels virtual class

May 1, 2021

Milton Arts Guild will hold a new four-part virtual class, Drawing in Soft Pastels, taught by distinguished artist Siobhan Duggan, to be held on consecutive Tuesday afternoons, noon to 2 p.m., throughout the month of May (May 4, 11, 18 and 25).

During the soft pastels workshop, students will discuss choosing a subject, underpainting color choices, how to use pastels throughout a drawing, and adding details in the final stages to complete a picture.

Using soft pastels (as opposed to oil pastels), students will work from their own photo references. Each class will include a demonstration, time to work and feedback from the instructor.

Duggan is a 2021 Delaware Individual Artist Fellow in the category of Emerging Professional for Visual Arts: Works on Paper, as well as a 2017 Artists Opportunity grant recipient from the Delaware Division of the Arts. She holds a BFA from SUNY Purchase and Master of Arts in Teaching from the School of Visual Arts in New York.
