Length in weeks: 6
The course will be aimed at those who have little or no experience of using pastels. We will experiment in a variety of drawing and blending techniques, then develop those techniques to replicate copies of paintings done by well-known artists. Pastels can give people the opportunity to work in colour, produce a piece of work that has a painterly effect but does not involve the use of paraphernalia involved in oil or acrylic painting. Robert has over forty years’ experience as an art teacher and believes that the early stages of teaching any medium require a lot of demonstration and hands-on help. The aim is for participants to work towards creating pastel pieces based upon their own source images. Materials such as good quality pastel sets and coloured pastel paper pads are available at reasonable prices through Amazon.co.uk and retail outlets like Hobbycraft or local Art shops in Bedford, Hitchin and Milton Keynes.
NOTE: There will be no class on October 4th, instead the course will be extended by one week and will now finish on 1st November.
