Dawn Emerson

Pastel Workshop


Saturday & Sunday,

April 9 & 10, 2011

9:00 – 4:00 pm


Whatever the subject Dawn paints with pastels, there is a sense of energy, movement, and vitality that is engaging to the viewer. Her work has won numerous national and international awards, and she has been featured in art magazines such as The Pastel Journal, The Artists' Magazine, and International Artist.

Her work is included in books such as A Painter's Guide to Design and Composition, The Best of Pastel Volume 1 and 2, and Strokes of Genius Volume 2.

Dawn is a signature member of the PSA and the PSWC, and she is a dedicated artist/teacher with over 20 years of experience teaching drawing and painting to adults and kids of all ages. Her teaching style is dynamic, challenging and inspiring, and most importantly--FUN and innovative.



Be prepared to literally dance your way through 2 days of intensive fun. This workshop is sure to shake you out of your comfort zone and launch you to new horizons with your pastels! We'll focus on animals as the subject the first day and the human figure the second day.  Students will explore new approaches to seeing, drawing, and painting in an environment where you are encouraged to take artistic risks and find a more personal and intuitive approach to pastel painting.
