Faculty: Margaret Ferraro
Margaret Ferraro's artwork includes pastel, oil, and acrylic painting and is rooted in traditional style while playing with some level of abstraction, particularly in her use of colour. Margaret holds Master Pastellist, EP Distinction, a level currently by only six pastel artists in Canada. Since 2008, she has led painting trips to Central and South America, France, Italy, Spain, Costa Rica, Peru and most recently, Portugal. She has exhibited widely in the Ottawa area, as well as with the Pastel Society of Eastern Canada (Montreal), Pastel Artist of Canada (various locations across Canada, Toronto, Vancouver), the Pastel Society of America (New York City), and more. Margaret is a seasoned instructor of not only pastel, but also underpainting for pastel, and creativity courses on how to find your voice and progress as an artist. www.margaretferraro.blogspot.com.
