“Drawn into the Scene” – painting with Amy Sanders

Program for Sunday, August 15, 2021

Amy Sanders paints in the lesser known medium of dry pastel, and uses the beauty of the natural world as her inspiration. Her highly realistic style renders the intricacies of both wildlife and landscapes, surpassing what can be captured in a photograph. Join her for a short demonstration of this medium along with a discussion of its history and technique. The roots of the soft pastel medium, with its intense colors and permanence,  can be traced back to prehistoric cave paintings, and is now enjoying a modern resurgence of popularity. Questions, comments and observations will be welcome throughout.

In 2016, she opted to open a new chapter in life and shift from a career as a special education teacher to that of being a fine artist. Amy works closely with the nature all around her, both as an artist and as a volunteer at Wild Care. An award-winning artist, Sanders is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, and a respected art juror in the art show circuit. Her work resides in collections throughout New England and is represented exclusively by the Addison Art Gallery of Orleans, Massachusetts.
