Demonstration – The demonstration this month will be given by Janet Hayes, who will demonstrate working with pastels.

Janet is an award winning artist and mainly works in pastels, being attracted to their unique texture, the possibility of glowing colour and the variety of artwork achievable from a quick sketch to a more detailed, finished painting.

Janet studied at the Melbourne College of Decoration in the mid seventies, then with Melbourne artist/teacher Con Pappas before twice travelling to New York to study pastel portraiture with portraitist, artist, tutor Daniel Greene in the mid eighties.

Among several awards Janet Hayes has received is the Allied Artists of America Award at the Pastel Society of America annual exhibition, New York City in 1993.

This demonstration will be of interest to any artists wanting to explore using pastels.
