The New Pastel School

Nel and Rebecca have created The New Pastel School after years of friendship and mutual respect for each other’s work. The courses offer the unusual experience of having two experienced pastel artists sharing the tuition, and combining their expertise and great enthusiasm for this versatile and exciting medium. As tutors and demonstrators they can help people see that there are always different ways to do things, even when working with the same pastels. Courses are available for all abilities. As well as learning skills and processes, students are inspired by demonstrations and encouraged to find their own way to work with the medium and develop their individual skills. Subject matter varies, as between them Rebecca and Nel have years of experience painting figures, portraits, animals, flowers, landscapes, still life, architecture and abstracts. They both feel that whatever the subject, its life, emotion and energy can be captured with pastels.

This course serves as an introduction to pastels but is also suitable for ‘improvers’ too and those wishing to take the next steps in developing their painting, and learning more. We will both be demonstrating as usual and will introduce some of the different types of pastels available and explore, in more depth than before, a range of different techniques and ways of using the medium. It is a refreshing chance to have a go at new ways of working, learn about colour and how to use it, and then enjoy the benefits of working from life and outdoors (weather permitting). Subject matter will vary.

Price for Shorlands New and Improvers Residential Course for 4 nights and 3 days; This includes 4 nights accommodation, all meals, 3 full days tuition and all materials.
