Pastel Workshop with Gabrielle Barzaghi at Rocky Neck Cultural Center

pastel workshop

July 19, 20 and 21, 10 am – 3 pm

This is an intensive three-day workshop that explores traditional and contemporary approaches to drawing with chalk pastels. There will be an ongoing conversation about color (observed and expressive), formal and technical drawing concerns, and meaning and metaphor as it relates to our work. There will be demos, critiques, and lots of one-on-one attention. Participants should have basic drawing skills. If you love to draw and would like to learn how to use pastels, or would like to brush up on your pastel technique and try new things, this would be a great workshop to take. Painters will find this medium a welcome addition to their studio practice.

Artist and Educator Gabrielle Barzaghi is a Senior Lecturer at New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University and has taught college level drawing since 1980. You may see her work at
