Pastel Workshop Texas

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

Due to a very special request, I am teaching again in Texas. (And if you like this workshop, I hope you will consider joining me in Hawai’I in January 2011.)

Texas Art Workshop Dates: October 23 & 24, 2010: 2 - 6 p.m. each day
Studio of Kelly Borsheim, Cedar Creek, Texas (20-minute drive southeast of Bergstrom International Airport - Austin)

In this hands-on introductory 2-day workshop, you will learn how to improve your drawing and observation skills and how to achieve a more 3-dimensional effect in your art using pastels and charcoal. Kelly will demonstrate, as well as assisting participants on an individual basis. For this workshop, we will work from photographic references - either from your images or copy a classical work of art. Or, if you prefer, bring in a current project that you wish to improve. Other topics discussed during the workshop as participants desire: framing, marketing, and pricing.

Participants do not need to have had prior art experience, although some drawing skills will be helpful. Class size is limited, so please enroll early. Details, as well as the supply list, are online at

Thank you for your interest! Let us paint together . . .

Ciao, Casey!
No, this is a detail of Carlo Dolci's "Madonna Blu" The original portrait hangs in the Ringling Brother Museum of Art on the West Coast of Florida -- a lovely serene portrait!

Boy, i wish I could join you in Hawaii. But, we blew our wad on a great family vacation. I could have bought a new car with the money we spent. Well, a really nice used car. So, I'm still driving my piece of crap car, but I have some wonderful memories instead. I'll take the memories.

Hi Laura,
Sounds as though you had a fun holiday. I think the workshop in Texas will be fun too, even if not quite exotic -- it will be held in my studio in central Texas on October 23 & 24, 2010.

Gonna be cool!
