Pastels for Beginners

 

Start Date: 23 July 2019
Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm
With: Val Pettifer
Cost: £50.00

Fee includes some materials

Overview:
This one day work-shop is designed as an introduction to the varied world of soft pastels, and the effects that can be achieved. So let Val introduce you to the vast array of pastel papers, the various types and brands of pastels, and the methods of application. The day will commence with an illustrated talk, plus step-by-step demonstrations to help guide you through the creation of your own pastel painting. Regular individual tuition will be provided through-out the day, and each student should complete at least one finished painting.

See samples of Val’s work here.

Who should attend?
This work-shop is aimed at both the complete beginner, or individuals who already has some limited experience, but no formal tuition of working with pastels.

What to bring:

  • Pastel pencils – if you have them, but don’t worry if you do not
  • A small selection of hard pastels – Conte™ or similar if you have them
  • Soft pastels – bring whatever you have, but don’t worry if you don’t, as Val keeps a wide range in the studio that students can sample
  • Pastel paper – ideally a sanded surface such as Fisher400™, Colourfix™ or similar, or Clairefontaine PastelCard™, or mountcard – minimum size A3 (the workshop does include one sheet of quality pastel paper)
  • Kitchen roll & wet-wipes
  • Photographic images to work from – I’m leaving the subject to each individual, but keep it simple as time will be limited. A simple landscape/seascape is ideal!

Note: The studio will supply easels, drawing boards and water pots

Meals:
Tea, coffee & biscuits supplied, but please bring a packed lunch
