Encyclopedia Britannica defines Fauvism as: “A style of painting that flourished in France around the turn of the 20th century. Fauve artists used pure, brilliant colour aggressively applied straight from the paint tubes to create a sense of an explosion on the canvas.”
During this class, Kelly Brown will show you how to use pastels to draw faces using this unique style.
Pastels & paper are included, but feel free to bring your own!
