A pastel drawing (or painting) refers to any art created using pastels—which are concentrations of coloured powdered pigment held together with a binding agent. Dry pastel pigments are most commonly formed into pastel sticks, which function as a type of soft crayon yielding vibrant colours similar to oil paint.

Lead by Pilar de la Torre, during this workshop you will learn the essential techniques and information. This class will cover:

  • the use of soft, hard & oil pastels, pastel pencils
  • the material properties of pastels
  • how to effectively manage value and colour with pastels
  • how to use pastels to communicate form and suggest texture
  • how to create depth and atmosphere in your image.
