Janis Ellison Pastel Workshop:

 

Janis Ellison is excited to offer the one day  pastel painting  workshop,

 

The Art of the Wave!

  Saturday, July 22nd, 10:00-3:00 at Central Art Supply

 

If you have reference photos of waves please bring them, Janis will also bring photographs if you do not have them.

 

Here is a tip: I find the best way to take photos of isolated waves is to take a video on your iPhone, then freeze the frame by taking a “screen shot” when you get that perfect wave. Here is how to do it on an iPhone, or iPad https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT200289. You could also take the video with your camera, load into you computer and use your photo editing software.

 

I have already received payment and deposits from many of you. If you haven’t registered yet you can do so by calling or emailing me to see if there is still space and then mailing either a 25.00 deposit or payment in full of 85.00 to me at the address below. (I will be away on a trip, so please don’t be alarmed if your check doesn’t get cashed until July when I return).
