Marty Mitchell, Oil Pastel Artist Extraordinaire, will be offering a one day workshop for Fairfield artists and art students. Marty Mitchell is a master colorist. Her vibrant and dynamic oil pastel landscapes shimmer with clarity and a subtlety of light. Twenty-one of these beautiful plein air paintings are currently on exhibit at Gilded Pear Gallery in Cedar Rapids, (Check them out at http://www.gildedpeargallery.com/ , click on Artists, then on Marty Mitchell)

Marty holds an MFA in painting from West Virginia University, and has exhibited her art nationwide. She has taught studio and art history and appreciation classes for several colleges, and has a studio and gallery in Mt. Vernon, Iowa.

On Sunday May 19th, 9:45am – 4:45pm, Marty will teach a one day oil pastel workshop at the Fairfield Art Association studio at Convention Center. The cost is $85.00 .  After the workshop with Marty, there will be weekly follow-up oil pastel sessions taught by John Preston.

Oil pastels are rich, vibrant, luscious, and dust-free, (not irritating/toxic to lungs).
They create wonderful painterly effects, that you mix and blend directly on paper.
They are ideal for plein air painting and travel: easy to transport, no set up, mixing, or clean up.

Call Nan White, 472-7848, for more information, and to register for workshop.
