Instructor: Faith Nelson
In this beginner-level online workshop, we will be going over how to use chalk pastels to create vibrant, impressionistic pieces. Pastels are a fun medium for adults, as well as children! We'll go over a variety of topics in our lessons, including gesture drawing, blending and mixing color, creating gradients, and how to layer and seal your pastel drawings.
One of my favorite things about chalk pastel is that it's a fast medium - meaning that it allows you to work very quickly and freely. In the class I will walk you through how to draw this little cactus, and then I'll demonstrate how to work on a larger scale as well.
This is a self-paced online class, that you will have lifetime access to! So you'll be free to rewatch lessons as many times as you like.
Materials are not included in this class. In the first lesson I will go over the materials you will need, and I'll provide links so that everything's easy to find!
By the end of the class, you will feel much more comfortable using chalk pastels, and you'll also have a solid foundation of drawing skills that will carry over into other art forms.
