The colors of spring at your fingertips! Flowering trees are a welcome pop of color after the long cold winter, but the early-spring color pallet can be a challenging subject to paint. Join Meg for this one-day workshop where we'll create a wet underpainting, explore mark making techniques, the concept of color massing, and breakdown how to effectively use higher-saturation hues, all while learning to create the character and essence of flowering trees.


Students will use an instructor-supplied photo. The workshop includes demonstrations, lots of feedback during class, and a detailed critique of your painting by email after class. All levels of pastel experience welcome. Some previous painting experience (with any medium) is recommended.

"Meg is an excellent teacher. I like the way workshops are done, including the email feedback given afterwards, it's very helpful. I look forward to taking online classes again in the future."

"I enjoyed the workshop very much and hope to take more online workshops with Meg. I learned a lot and the feedback is wonderful!"


"Taking a class from Meg is sitting at the feet of a  master, one who shares all her secrets and techniques without covering over your own personal style. There's a wide gap between doing and teaching, Meg closes that with patience, enthusiasm, and specific, very helpful critiques. I'd recommend her well-planned and creative lessons to anyone wanting to learn and improve their artistic abilities."


"I took my first pastel class with Meg and totally enjoyed myself. The new techniques were fun and Meg was both encouraging and also offered gentle criticisms, which are so necessary in order to grow. I have decided to continue with pastel and hope to take more workshops with Meg soon. Thank You Meg!"


"This workshop was fantastic!"
