    Instructor: Janet Schwartz

    Program Description

    In this three-hour virtual workshop designed for beginners and aspiring artists, we will use pastels to explore the importance of value and how to simplify what you see without get stuck on details. 

    Students will be asked to paint from a photograph that initially looks like an abstraction.  As additional photos are used of the same subject that are more and more in focus, the painting evolves into something recognizable. Focusing on value and composition, we will paint the image together, step by step, as the instructor demonstrates and guides students to complete the work.  The resulting artwork will inspire a brief discussion of the role of art in advocacy.

    Important Details:

    • This program is sponsored by Salem Arts Association and funded by the generous support of the Salem Cultural Council.    
    • This virtual workshop is free and open to the first six registered, with a waitlist in case of cancellations.

During the years as president of Hardy House she began to exhibit her own artwork at galleries throughout New England and taught Graphic Arts at the Cambridge Adult Center for Education and at Phillips Academy where she also served as Director of Publications for over 14 years.

Paula was an artist throughout her life, a legacy she brought forward from her mother Rita Casey.

    After growing up in Methuen, Mass., Paula resided in Hollywood, Florida and Reading, Mass. (where she raised her two sons Dan and Matt) before moving to Salem, Mass., where she spent her remaining years. “Creativity occurs in the moment, and in the moment we are timeless.”

    —The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron
