Thank you to the Saugus Cultural Council for giving us the opportunity to invite artist Sharon Morley to the library for a pastel painting workshop. The Saugus Cultural Council is a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
At the May 30 workshop Sharon started by showing an enthusiastic group of attendees the techniques of working with pastels. Next everyone had the opportunity to create a picture from a still life arranged by Sharon, or to take inspiration from a favorite photo.
As these remarks by participants show, Sharon is not only a talented artist but a great teacher:
- What a wonderful class! Sharon is the best and so encouraging and helpful. She takes the fear out of trying something new and totally out of one’s comfort zone!
- I thought this was a good class and would love to do it again to learn more.
- Excellent introduction to pastel! It was a very fun and hands-on class!
- Thank you! Your class was great and a lot of good information and good instruction.
