WHAT WILL YOU NEED?
If you have pastel supplies, please bring them along. If you don’t, i will have supplies to borrow and paper to buy for a small weekly charge until you are ready to choose what to buy.  There are so many brands of pastels and papers it can be very confusing!  If you have a drawing board please bring that along – I do have some to borrow if you don’t.

The class focuses on soft pastel painting with pastel sticks/pastel pencils and drawing skills but other media may be covered. We cover a wide range of subjects from wild animals, horses, domestic animals, people/children and other subjects if desired by the class. All photo references are supplied and you can bring your own photos too.

Each class starts with a demo, following a theme that we are working on. For example, dog or horse portraits. During the lesson I will be on hand to help and guide you with your artwork. Some students may wish to work on there own subjects and i will be on hand to help.  To start, the classes will be quite structured but as everyone progresses there can be a looser format that can be tailored to the groups needs.

SUITABLE FOR… anyone from total beginner to semi-professional.  Tuition is completely tailored to individual students, work at your own pace, absolutely no pressure.

Themes will be based on a subject or a topic i.e. dogs/horses/wild animals or focusing on paper and pastel brands and types, composition, colour theory, using photographs – I will have a list for you very soon.  If you are not interested in a theme you are welcome to continue with your own subject and I will help you as required.

If you would like to join, email me here or call me on 07740282399 and I’ll email you a booking form.
