Description: The Mattawoman Creek Art Center is proud to be hosting Two Rivers Workshops. Two Rivers Workshops will be sponsoring a 2 day workshop on using oil pastels with Luba Sterlikova. Oil pastel is a relatively new medium for drawing and painting. Originally created for students in Japan, it became a professional medium when famous artists like Pablo Picasso started using it for works on different surfaces. Oil pastel is a unique medium - neither oil paint nor pastel, but it combines the best qualities of both. In this workshop, attendees will learn basic techniques for this medium, some basics of flower drawings, and then use oil pastel for creating a blown-up image of a tulip. Each student will complete a drawing on 19"x24" Canson Mi-Teintes paper.

Luba Sterlikova has participated in over 80 exhibits in the USA, Russia, Europe and Asia. Her art works are in the collections of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, in Washington DC; The National Museum of Kazakhstan, Astana, Kazakhstan; The Bakhrushin Theatre Museum, Moscow; The National Museum of Fine Art of Tatarstan, Kazan; The State Art Museum, Khanty-Mansiysk, The Russian State Library as well as in the private collections of the USA, UK, Russia, France, Germany, and China. Her works have been featured in various publications, TV and Radio programs.

Afternoon snacks and beverages will be provided. Please bring your own lunch.
