Learn how to use pastels to create beautiful art. We’ll cover colour theory, blending techniques and loads of other tips and tricks as well as sketching and hands-on pastel painting. You’ll learn how to mix colours on paper, how to paint light and shadow using complementary colours and the many ways you can apply pastel to achieve the lightest of touches all the way through to thick heavy applications.
Pastels are a beautiful medium to paint or draw with (it’s the only medium you can do both). The colours range from deep earthy reds and greens to luminous yellows and brights and everything in between. The texture of pastels, combined with textured paper gives your art a wonderful depth that can’t be achieved with other mediums. You don’t need brushes or any other tools because it’s all in the movement of your hand.
No experience is necessary, just a desire to discover your inner artist and have some fun with pastels.
