All levels of experience are welcome.

Develop your observational drawing skills and expand your understanding of colour via the medium of soft pastels. An excellent introduction to colour for students looking to develop transferable skills for painting still life in acrylic and oils. 

Students will create an artwork from start to finish with technical instruction on how to observe forms and draw from ‘life’. Applying soft pastel techniques such as gestural mark making and colour blending, students will explore a full palette of colours to render structure and form through careful observation. 

Materials List

Paper

  • 1 – 2 sheets of Canson ‘Mi-Teintes’ Paper (55 x 75 cm, 160gsm), or other pastel drawing paper, in 'Hemp' or another colour of preference (such as cream, khaki, steel grey, pale blue, pale green, etc).
  • Cartridge paper or notebook for sketching and testing colours

Soft Pastels

  • A good quality set of student colours such as ‘Mungyo Soft Pastels - Set of 48’ are suitable for this workshop. Do not purchase sets of 12 colours as this will limit your palette. 
  • If you have them, soft pastel pencils also come in handy for details (but are not essential).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Soft pastels are different in feel, texture, and blending capabilities than oil pastels. Double check that you do not purchase oil pastels. 

Stationery

  • Masking tape
  • Kneadable eraser
  • Ruler
  • Pencils and art diary

Other

  • Hand wipes and/or rags
  • Nitrile disposable gloves (optional)
