Relax, connect and tune into your creativity with a fun adventure in color!  Mandar is an award-winning artist based in Alameda, CA who loves to teach pastel painting to adults of all skill levels. No experience necessary!! He begins his class with a demonstration to help the participants tap into their own creativity. Once inspired the participants then go on to create their own works of art. He keeps it relaxed and fun with some good music and light-hearted interaction. His students have really enjoyed his classes and found them helpful in releasing stress and finding inner balance.

Feather River Art Camp:

June 7- June 14, 2020

… the OPPORTUNITY to do what you love for a solid week without interruption

Imagine being fully inspired and receptive to the healing powers of nature in the former home of the Maidu Indians. You are enjoying a week expanding your creativity and making art.

You are surrounded by other creative adults who are giving themselves the gift of time. No shopping, cooking or cleaning to worry about; you need not even get in your car to drive anywhere.

Classes meet along the sparkling Spanish Creek or nearby, in the midst of the fragrance of oak and pine trees and a profusion of wildflowers.

Choose ‘Soft Pastels’ from the ‘Classes’ menu.

Price: ~$1,200 per person.

All classes, workshops, meals and accommodations are included.

Supplies needed for soft pastels class.

  1. Soft Pastels: To get started a great brand will be Mungyo soft pastels as it’s a cost effective and quality product. Click here to see details on  Amazon.
  2. Soft pastels, option 2: Another of my favorite sets that’s good quality and not to pricey is Nu Pastel set of 24. Click here to buy from Amazon.
  3. Uart 400 Sanded Pastel Paper: Perfect surface for soft pastels. Doesnt buckle even when you use water in your underpainting process. Click here to buy from Amazon.
  4. Fixative: (optional) I like workable fixatives as I can keep building layers on them. Try Kyrlon workable fixative. Click here to buy from Amazon.
  5. Storage, bags: To store your pastel art you can find various different brands of flea bags. I had bought this one last time. But you can just as well buy others that are equally as good.
  6. Storage, paper option 2: A lot of pastel artists also use glassine paper to store their pastel art. Here is a link to amazon.
