29 and 30 April, 10am to 4pm
Exploring Pastels will be a ‘stress-free’ weekend looking at this very versatile medium. We will look at a variety of pastel techniques and then tackle a personal project to explore the opportunities that using soft pastels presents. All levels of experience will be catered for. Students are asked to bring along a reference piece to work from.
Bring a really good quality reference of what you’d like to paint (3D or photographic); scenic, portrait, still life etc. Pastels are chunky so keep the reference large and simple. You’ll be working around 30x40cm.
A stick or two of charcoal, soft and hard pastels and pastel pencils (not regular colour pencils). Don’t spend a fortune on quality pastels if you are just starting, there will be some pastels provided.
