Maggie Price 3-Day Indoor Workshop!

The Maryland Pastel Society is very pleased to announce that award-winning pastel artist (and Pastel Journal co-founder) Maggie Price will be giving a workshop for the MPS November 1, 2, and 3, 2012, at the Howard County Center for the Arts, 8510 High Ridge Road, in Ellicott City. In this studio-based workshop, Maggie will teach you how to develop lively and interesting paintings using photographic references, helping you move creatively past simply copying a photo to focus on composition and design, value and color temperature, and aerial perspective, while compensating for the inherent flaws of photographs. This workshop is open to students at all skill levels, with priority given to MPS members in good standing. Download the form below for instructions on how to enroll.

Not an MPS member? The workshop will be opened to non-MPS members after September 1, 2012. In the meantime, you can send an email to the workshop coordinator (download the enrollment form for contact information) to put yourself on the waiting list.
