Charcoal, Dry Pastels & Oil Pastels
This course allows the students to explore light and shadow, texture, depth and perspective with charcoal before introducing colour. Though pastels are often misunderstood as a stepping stone to painting with oil paints, dry and oil pastels are one of the most satisfying mediums for an artist. Many of the impressionists like Renoir, Gaugin, Degas and Van Gogh loved pastels. From street artists who work with chalk to classic artists and beyond, our students delve into the world of pastels.
