A Quick Pastel Sketch Demo with Nancy Freeman

Nancy Freeman pastel demo

With Winter term classes underway, our camera crew is once again making the rounds of Art League classrooms to record instructor demos. Today we’re pleased to add the first pastel demo to our library, courtesy of Nancy Freeman!

In the video, Nancy shows her Wednesday morning Exploring Pastel class how to do a quick pastel sketch, working from a reference photo she took near Monterey, California. It starts with showing the paper who’s boss — watch the video after the jump:

Thanks to Nancy for the demo! You can see all of Nancy’s classes in our online catalog, including a repeat of Exploring Pastel and a brand-new class, Apps for Artists, both starting in April. Exploring Pastel is suitable for both beginning and experienced pastelists.

Nancy has other detailed demos on her website, and don’t forget to check out our YouTube playlist with dozens of instructor demos and subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven’t already!
