In the past 20 years, there has been huge renaissance in pastel, as it can be used as both a drawing and painting medium, and is easy for students new to art to experiment with.
This class caters for students who are new to pastel, and also students with some experience with pastel. The course will cover lessons in still life, portrait and landscape pastel paintings, with plenty of demonstrations and weekly emailed class notes from the tutor. Students will develop skills and confidence and discover the joy of working with pastels.
MATERIALS: The tutor has spare sets of pastels which she is happy to lend to students who are new to pastel. Also she has examples of the different pastel papers for students to try.
Otherwise, bring your own pastels, pastel papers, willow charcoal, bull dog clips, wet wipes, apron and drawing board. An A2 light weight foam board makes an excellent drawing board.
