Online Art Workshop: Pastels

Pastels - Art Workshop Outline

Pastels Art Workshop gives you ways to explore and become confident with pastels. By understanding the techniques and skills used to manipulate these materials gives you an opportunity to blend, overlay, feather and scumble. By understanding the boundaries of each media can give you handles to hold onto to achieve more options for its use. Develop some pastel techniques that could enhance what you might already know or give you a fresh approach to your own style of working with your pastels

Hatching, stippling, scribbling and using elements of colour are just some of the ways to develop techniques to begin introducing you to ways of working. You will gain a sense of confidence around decision making and each technique will be applied to create a visual example to be documented in your Visual Journal. These will then be taken further to explore the possibilities of larger pastel artworks. Learn how to explore your own environment and source materials that can be transferred into an idea for further use.

Two videos included in the Art workshop are designed to expand your repertoire of how to manipulate and utilise materials and surfaces. You will be shown some creative and easy ways to take your techniques and skills further. From starting points you create, you will begin to open up the possibilities for your own artwork.
