Introduction to Pastels

Join Gill Buckmaster of Red Poppies Studios for this introduction to this effective medium of pastels. Ideal for beginners or returners to art

Join us at Astral Park for this fun introduction to ‘Vibrant Pastels’

Suitable for beginners and those who  wish to revisit this wonderfully
vibrant, colourful,  versatile medium.

Either way you will be guided through the fun process to learn some
different techniques using both chalk and oil pastels on a selection of
different surfaces. You will produce a lovely little soft pastel bee
first, then we will move on to create a fabulous poppy field painting
using oil pastels.
