VIEW: Artist Ingrid Van Slyke to lead two-day pastel workshop

Pastel artist Ingrid Van Slyke of Lake Placid and Big Moose will lead a two-day workshop, Exploring Pastels from Beginning to End, at VIEW on Monday and Tuesday, August 3 and 4 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Van Slyke’s pastel paintings have been juried into numerous national pastel exhibitions, including the Northeast National Pastel Exhibition at VIEW. Her subjects include figurative, landscape, and portraiture.

She is a member of the Adirondack Pastel Society and the Pastel Society of America.

Her hands-on class will take participants from the very beginning of the painting process including composition and value to the finishing touches.

Different methods and subjects will be explored.

Students will be working from still life and photographs, and will have the opportunity to paint outdoors, if time allows.

All levels are welcome. The cost for the workshop is $250 for non-members and $200 for members of VIEW.

Lunch is included both days.
