Class Description

Pastel painting is a completely dry technique – no water used at all (not normally). It is usually in a stick form and with very little  binder to hold the pigment together. It can also be in pencil form. It needs a surface with “tooth” to enable the pigment to adhere to it. The final paint has to be protected behind glass to protect the pastel from smearing.

In this lesson you will learn:

1.  What equipment there is available
2.  What paper to use
3.  How to choose pastels
4.  How to protect your painting
