The Figure in Pastel or Oil

ARTIST: Margaret Dyer

3-Day Studio Workshop
All Levels

This studio workshop is an intense three-day class in which students are taught a traditional pastel or oil painting technique.  Margaret teaches a simple step-by-step method. Working with a live model, we will explore drawing, composition, anatomy, proportion, value, color, and pastel application or oil painting method. Emphasis is on developing form using light and shadow. For those wanting to speed up and become less tight in their work, this is an excellent class to take.

Margaret Dyer has lived in Atlanta, GA, since her family moved from New York in 1960. She attended the Atlanta College of Art at the High Museum of Art and furthered her studies under painters Roman Chatov, Kate Fetterolf and Jim Richards. Margaret is a Master Pastelist with the Pastel Society of America, Masters Circle in the International Association of Pastel Societies and award-winner in the American Impressionist Society.
