Ken Schwab will demonstrate Pastels with Stencils at the January 24, 2009 meeting

Filed under: Meetings on January 9, 2009 5:10 pm

Ken Schwab has recently retired from teaching in the public schools. Some of you have met Ken when he recently substituted in Doug Wright’s MAEP classes. Ken works in many media, and has co-authored two books Start to Draw and Drawing Course 101. On January 24, he will be demonstrating his unique technique with pastels. Even if you don’t normally work in pastel, you will find it to be an interesting demonstration…and it may encourage you to try a new medium!
