Medium: Pastel

This workshop is an introduction to high quality coloured pastels. The day will focus primarily on drawing the human figure clothed in a variety of costumes, using props and furniture. This will be an extended life drawing class and introduction to the fascinating world of pastel techniques. The desired outcome is that everyone should develop both their confidence and their drawing skills through observation and understanding.

All abilities very welcome.
