The Power of Pastels Zoom Workshop

April 25 - May 9, 2020

Instructor: Takeyce Walter

This is a three-session, 2 hour per week workshop.
The beauty and immediacy of the pastel medium has been loved and appreciated by artists and collectors for generations. Join artist and instructor Takeyce Walter as she shares her exploration of the incredible medium of pastels.  This online three-session workshop will cover the fundamentals of painting with pastels, including supplies, technique, mark making, color, and more. This workshop is designed for students of all levels. Takeyce will be working with pastels to provide demos, and students will be provided with one-on-one feedback, reference material, and assignments to practice the techniques learned at home. There will also be a critique at the end of class to review the work completed.
Students will also be invited to join Takeyce's private Workshops Group on Facebook, where they can post their works created during the session for additional critiques, and tips.

About Takeyce:

Takeyce Walter is an award winning contemporary American painter (born 1980, Jamaica), media producer, and art instructor living and working in beautiful upstate New York. Driven to create from an early age, Walter has been producing art for as long as she can remember. Currently, her focus has been on the natural landscape of the Northeast. Walter’s paintings present that landscape in all its glory – flowing rivers, majestic skies, and picturesque lakes. There is a great sense of familiarity, tranquility, and reverence in each piece. The paintings feature the rural landscape of upstate New York, the Adirondacks, Cape Cod, and Vermont. Walter is especially inspired by, and drawn to bodies of water; rivers, lakes, marshes, streams and the ocean. She is fortunate to live near the scenic Hudson, Mohawk, Au Sable Rivers, and visits the beaches of Cape Cod during the summer. Inspired by the Daily Painters of the mid-2000s, Walter made a commitment to finishing at least one painting a week in 2005, and started blogging to help track her progress. Many years later, she has maintained that commitment and is currently producing art on a prolific basis. In addition to exhibiting her paintings online, she also exhibits in regional galleries in the Northeast. Her art has found homes in many private collections across the country, and internationally, as well these notable collections: The Saratoga Hospital Foundation, and the Brookside Museum.
