2021 Lynn Asselta 2-Day Workshop 

The “Why” of Painting

To know “how” to create a painting, it’s important to know “why” you want to make that painting.  Most of your painting process can be determined by answering that simple question.

This 2-day virtual workshop will explore the way your intent can help shape your paintings and allow your own unique voice to come through.

This workshop will consist of demos, group discussions, and painting time daily, with an additional “casual critique” for the group on the first evening.

Dates: October 23 & 24 (Saturday and Sunday)

Hours: 9:00am – 4:00pm + a critique on Saturday 23rd from 6-7pm

Lynn Asselta, PSA-MP, IAPS-EP

Lyn Asselta has considered the landscape her muse since she was a child.  Growing up on the coast of Maine, where weather often changed by the minute, the effects of atmosphere on land and water were an everyday, mesmerizing occurrence. Her memories are rich in details of the natural world and she draws from her love of nature when creating her paintings.  Her chosen medium of pastel allows her to extend her tactile sense of communicating with the world into the painting process at her easel. 


Asselta’s paintings have been exhibited throughout the United States and have been included in invitational exhibitions in France and China.  As a workshop instructor, she has taught in Canada, Curacao and across the USA.

She is an IAPS (International Association of Pastel Societies) Eminent Pastelist, a Pastel Society of America Master Pastelist, a member of the Salmagundi Club, a member of several pastel societies, and is the founder and past president of the First Coast Pastel Society in northeast Florida.

In 2009, Lyn was selected as an Artist in Residence at Acadia National Park in Maine.  Her work has been featured in art publications including Pastel Journal, Plein Air Magazine, and Pratique des Arts.
