Painting with Pastels

Course number : NCR 9406   
« back to classes page
Soft pastels are the purest form of artist color, made almost exclusively from pure pigment with only enough binder to allow them to be formed into useable sticks. Whether you are a beginner starting your study of art, or an advanced artist looking to explore a different medium, this four week class will provide you with a strong foundation in the creation of paintings using soft pastels. This is a painting medium that is direct and easy to use.
In this class, through weekly demonstrations, you will learn how to paint a landscape, a still life subject with flowers and fruit, a seascape and an animal or bird subject in soft pastel.
Other painting considerations that will be covered include the drawing for painting, choosing color for harmony, color value relationships and the choice and arrangement of the subject matter for painting.
Materials list will be supplied.
