This class will be taking place in person at The RWA Drawing School Studio at the Royal West of England Academy. If government restrictions prevent this, due to Covid, this course will take place on Zoom.
This introductory pastel drawing day will take you through the processes of developing artwork using this versatile colourful and immediate art material. Explore the possibilities with soft chalk pastels through playful introductory exercises. After a demonstration of Helen’s pastel method you will then be guided through the developmental stages from background, mid-ground and foreground to create a stunning piece of your own work.
Develop your confidence in drawing, making marks, blending and understanding the material's qualities. Suitable for all abilities.
All basic materials provided for this class, although participants are encouraged ot bring images of landscapes that appeal to them - photographs, painting, postcards etc. Please bring an apron or wear clothes suitable for an art studio, and bring a bag suitable for taking your work home.
