In this workshop, we learn to make sense of the colours in our palette and use them to build pastel work that is fresh and bright, avoiding work that is muddy and over worked. Begin to understand your light source so you can make creative decisions that pay attention to colour harmony and balance, while infusing energy and atmosphere into your work. Group discussion and a pastel demonstration will guide you through all the important stages of building your pastel and will include:
Each workshop includes handouts, demonstrations, individual tutoring to deal with your specific needs and goals, group discussion and a final critique to provide you with great "next steps". Exercises are designed to develop new skills and challenge our approach to working.

Learn to organize and simplify the complexity of colour and build oil paintings that are engaging and impactful. In this workshop you will learn colour concepts such as colour temperature, simplified palettes, and colour harmony that will deepen your understanding of how colour works and put strategy and intention into your practice.
The class is a continuation of my course "Painting with Oils", but these classes can be taken separately. As with all my class there is a continued focus on principles of composition, brush handling and paint application as these are key aspects of a successful painting.

"Jessica's insight and encouragement helped me discover the bold, painterly style that had been eluding me". Susan Typert
"Jessica is not only a wonderful teacher and artist but she is also the most welcoming host...and that makes her workshops something truly special. I had so much fun while I was learning, I can't wait for the next time. " Andrea Pyman-Varangura
"I attended Jessica Master's July, 2017 workshop held in Thornbury, Ontario, and can very much recommend Ms. Master's approaches to using pastels and teaching. Jessica is a terrifically generous teacher with materials and her demos, and has developed the uncanny ability to work with each participant at the right level. Great planning and execution provided comfortable working spaces. Fit this workshop into your schedule." Catherine
"I really like your teaching style (not too fast) and your friendly, approachable personality made for a very relaxed atmosphere. Your new space is great and I felt sufficiently distanced from the other participants.
All in all, a very positive experience where I felt that I really learned a lot. Colleen

I believe it's important to have proper brushes, but they don't have to expensive ones. In my painting practice and teaching I use the squared shape of a Bright or Flat. Please bring:
