This 1 day course is an introduction to pastels. Aimed at those new to pastels and are interested in gaining an understanding on how to use this material.

During the morning session, we will get familiar with soft pastel, how to create colours in pastel and how to blend them on paper. Then we will start creating a still life, which we will carry on working on and finish in the afternoon session. We will use a print copy as reference for this workshop.

This is an opportunity to learn pastel techniques, practice and gain confidence in creating pastel on paper works. Over the day, Laleh your tutor will provide demonstrations, tips and give you support as you progress through the course.

Tutor: Laleh Kamalian

Laleh Kamalian – “Pastel is one of my two media of choice. Using their excellent blending properties and vibrant colours they are perfect for painting portraits, still life and landscapes in any style, from the most detailed realism to impressionist or even abstract styles. With the availability of a wide verity of soft pastel products, from pastel pencils to sticks and Pan Pastels, it gives the artist the opportunity to use one individually or combined to create from small details to hazy backgrounds on a large canvas.”
