Many of our members offer classes, workshops, tutoring, patron sites and such. APS provides this page for ease of locating artistic services they provide!
Nancy Lilly maintains a Blog on her painting development at www.nancylillyartist.com. Austin Pastel Society artists can go there and search on blog entries by topic type. She covers a lot of detail on DIY ground for textured panels and how to employ SpectraFix.
Anna Lisa Leal is offering a mini-workshop series. Join her for a fun monthly Saturday morning mini-workshop where you will learn more about painting our various prickly friends and their flowers in soft pastel! Take one workshop, take all classes in the series, or pick and choose your favorites. The class will run from 9:30-12:45 am Central.
Each session focuses on a particular type of xeric plant (cactus, opuntia, agave, aloe, night bloomers). Once registered, she will email you the details for the ZOOM meeting along with a suggested supply list. Class size is limited to 20. All workshops are available to view/register for on my website at https://www.annalisaleal.com/workshops

August 14 – “Red Rooster” Paint-Along with Rita Kirkman$22
Catch the glow of Summer Sunshine in this Rooster’s comb!
Register EARLY to have time to prep your drawing! Rita will send you the Zoom invitation, the reference photo, some surface prep info, and tips that include alternative underpainting methods in case you don’t have what she uses.
Rita will be using pastel with an acrylic-based underpainting, but you can use the medium of your choice. Rita has had some attendees enjoy use oil, acrylic, pastel pencil, and even watercolor with her paint-alongs. It’s whatever you want to make of it!
All registrants will receive a link to the video a few days later, so if you have to miss part, no worries!
