Debbie Pigman shares this reminder about the upcoming workshop at IMA…

I am resending this with this little note: even though this event is not until January 16, the minimum number of registrations to make it a “go” needs to be met by December 16, so we need to get this announcement out as soon as possible.
Thank you,

San Juan Islands Museum of Art (IMA) is pleased to present “Painting in Pastel,” January 16–18, 2016, a workshop offered by international award winning artist and instructor, Steven R. Hill, from Lopez Island, Washington. The workshop is a comprehensive, hands-on and technique-driven work shop, where students of all skill levels will learn to use the soft pastel medium to “paint” successfully and with confidence.

Steve has taught more than 50 workshops in the islands, around the U.S. and in Europe during the past 10 years, using basic exercises as a basis for quickly learning techniques that can take years to develop on your own. His workshop reviews consistently point to these basic elements as the single most important element taught and learned, as everyone is able to immediately use them to start rendering form, shape, and color.

Steve will provide daily demonstrations, then work the room with advice and suggestions as students create on their own from photos or still life objects.

The workshop runs from 9:00am­­–5:00pm each day. Cost is $300. Class size is limited. For more information and to register go to, call 360 370-5050 or email d.pigman [@]
