The New Pastel School Courses

2021 DATES OF COURSES TO FOLLOW SOON

Covid-19
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, some courses have been postponed for the moment. We will definitely be running more courses when it is safe to do so next year, and will keep updating this page when we know more.
We have 2 courses in Devon and 2 in Yorkshire planned in 2021, all 3 day non-residential courses.

Please get in touch if you be interested to hear about new dates. If you are already booked on a course, your deposit can be transferred to a future course, or it can be refunded. We cannot wait until we can meet up and make art together again! In the meantime let me know if you need any help with your art, and stay safe xx

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.
