Pastel Workshop

Pure Pigment at your Fingertips: Painting with Pastel

Fall 2020

November 10th – December 8th

Tuesday Evenings – 10 sessions, 6:30pm – 9:00pm

Location: Lunenburg School of the Arts

This class celebrates the pastel medium in its application and approaches. Traditional techniques will be the foundation of instruction, colour and light the focus. Discover how to solve problems of composition and colour, create the illusion of depth, and master lost and found edges. Under-painting with acrylic and/or watercolour is explored.

Artist quality pastels produce intense colour with an immediacy that most other mediums can’t match. Demonstrations are designed to give students the tools to develop an understanding of this medium.
