Plein Air Painting in Pastels

ART 0904 6.8 Quarter Hours
Course Level Continuing Education
Description Encourages K–12 art educators to expand their knowledge and explore painting with pastel. Pastels are a wonderful medium for painting en plein air. Demonstrations and discussions offer students an opportunity to explore pastel while developing their own style, followed by daily critiques. Discussions focus on the role artists have in working with the environment. Art teachers can use lessons to teach students about the influence artists have in promoting public awareness of preserving wildlife and the environment. Connections are made to the Massachusetts Frameworks, including lesson plans and assessment.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
