Learn to Draw with Pastels - Beginners & Beyond
From the time of Leonardo da Vinci onwards, artists experimented with developing pastels as a means of combining the benefits of the naturally occurring drawing medium of the chalk pencil with the rich variety of pigments used in paints.
Over the term students will:
- learn to select a “palette” of colours
- learn to use pastels from monochromatic underlayers to full colour
- understand the difference, similarities and the integrated use of natural chalk pigments and artificially bound pastel colours.
- A variety of A3 coloured papers – buff and blue-grey
- Oil-based sanguine red chalk pencil
- Oil-based black chalk pencil
- White chalk pencil
- Stanley knife for sharpening
- Kneadable eraser
- Two paper stumps
- A moderately priced Faber Castel box of 36 soft chalk pastels will be required from Week 3.
(The above materials are essential for being able to undertake the course. A chalk pastel box of 36 pastels is a minimum).
Additional materials may be suggested throughout the term.
