A Beginners Guide to Pastels

Do you want to learn how to use soft pastels, or enliven your current pastel work?

If so, then ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Pastels’ is for you. This is the video I have made to complement my book ‘Pastel for the Absolute Beginner’. It is divided into 2 parts, so if you don’t consider yourself a complete beginner, then you can just buy Part 2 which is great for developing your skills.

See lots more information about this here.

If you would like pastel video courses that focus on certain subject matter, then take a look at the other courses here on this page. 
I have made these with Art Tutor.com, an online art school, and they are hosted on their site. If you have already completed my ‘A Beginners Guide to Pastels’ course, you will find that these work in a similar way, but you will be linked to the Art Tutor website to do this.  If you would like to find out more about the courses, just click on the ‘more information’ link or the ‘buy now’ button.
