The New Pastel School Courses

2021 DATES OF COURSES

Covid-19
We are waiting to see if our 3 remaining courses this year will be happening. However, we felt that it would be useful if people can put the dates in their diary to help make plans for the year.
We have 1 course in Devon and 2 courses in Yorkshire in 2021, all are 3 day non-residential courses.

If you would like to provisionally reserve a place on one of these courses, please email Barbara on thenew.pastelschool@yahoo.co.uk 
We will not ask for a deposit until we know that the course will go ahead

If you are already booked on a course, your deposit can be transferred to a future course, or it can be refunded.

Nel Whatmore and I 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 our expertise and great enthusiasm for this versatile and exciting medium. As tutors and demonstrators we 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 us, Nel and I have years of experience painting figures, portraits, animals, flowers, landscapes, still life, architecture and abstracts. We both feel that whatever the subject, its life, emotion and energy can be captured with pastels.
