Artist League of Orange County hosts demo with Pastel Society of America Signature Member
ALOC (Artist League of Orange County) board member Doris Smart invited Pastel Society of America Signature Member Robin Maria Pedrero as the featured demonstrator for the November 17 2007 monthly meeting. Pedrero explored the facets of working with the medium of pastel. She started first by having members touch the selected Canson Mi Tientes paper to gain understanding of the ground. (ground is a term used by artists to describe the material they create their work upon) Pedrero began the landscape by blocking in color discussing the process while sharing life stories. Doris Smart responded, "Thanks again for the most interesting and educating demonstration ALOC has had in a while. We definitely will need to ask you to come back to do another with portraits as your demonstration. President Teri West suggested with such group interest for Pedrero to have a workshop in March 2008 at the Creative Spirit Gallery.
