This kit is produced exclusively for Capital One Associates to use in conjunction with the Cezanne-Inspired Oil Pastel with Shannon Driscoll of Oil and Cotton Art @ Home event on Friday, January 26, 2024. 

Join Oil and Cotton's Shannon Driscoll for a step-by-step introduction to oil pastel. This economical and versatile medium is easy to maneuver, blend, and transport. She will guide students through fun and immediate techniques, which we will use to closely examine the influential mark-making and color choices of Paul Cezanne. We will deconstruct a crop of one of his famous still life paintings, matching colors and paint application with easy to manipulate oil pastels. Students will finish an 8"x8" oil pastel on black paper and have additional kit materials to continue exploring Cezanne or invent a new style of their own.
