MARGARET DYER PASTEL, AND OIL PAINTING

About This Event

Margaret is the recent recipient of the Best Impressionist Painting Award at the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society (NOAPS) exhibition. She is a Master Pastelist with the Pastel Society of America, and she is in the Masters Circle of the International Association of Pastel Societies. Her work has been published in American Artist, International Artist, The Artist’s Magazine, Pastel Artist International and the Pastel Journal.

Originally from Long Island, New York, Margaret lives and paints in Atlanta, Georgia, her home base as she travels to teach workshops across the USA, in France and Italy.

In Margaret’s workshops students are taught traditional oil and pastel painting techniques. Working with live models and from photos taken during the class, students will explore drawing, composition, anatomy, proportion, value, color and pastel and/or oil application. Emphasis will be on developing form using light and shadow using Margaret’s easy step-by-step method. For those who are bewildered by color or are wanting to speed up and become less tight in their work, this is an excellent class to take.

Have been spending this year getting healthy and a retreat to relax and focus would be wonderful. Crocker
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
