“Life is Colourful” Pastel Course

Carol Schloss,  PSA

Educated at the Cleveland Institute of Art with a 5-year Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design, I spent over 30 years in Philadelphia as a Graphic Designer and Art Director.

In Cody, Wyoming, my draftsmanship and drawing skills combined well with pastels and my love of color and light.  Drawing provides the bones and framework, but to enhance the color I play with values and complements, layering and underpainting to approximate reality in an impressionistic way. 

Now relocated in British Columbia after 10 years in the American West, I’m an enthusiast of all things wild and natural, drawing on my years as a designer for composition, pattern and color. I’m honored to have been a winner of numerous awards and commissions, to have work in private collections across the country, and to have been exhibited across the western United States and Canada. Represented in a number of galleries over the years, I continue to invest a great amount of my time and energy in creating beautiful art.
