Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Pastel Painting - Introductory

Course Code: ARTS1100

This course begins with a thorough introduction to pastel supplies and their many application techniques. Study each method separately, first by example, then by demonstration, resulting in the creation of a sample booklet of different pastel mixing techniques. Utilize the proper techniques to keep a clear palette, control values, and layer pigment to create the luminous and rich quality of this medium. Instruction will familiarize you with different types of pastels, how to use them in conjunction with each other, and the most beneficial way of achieving impact with the medium. Basic colour theory is addressed while taking inventory of the colours you have and how to mix the ones you don't have. Learn the traditional technique for setting up a painting with a value sketch using a limited and then an expanded palette. Individual studies of many popular subjects such as trees, bushes, flowers, fruits, skies, and water will be covered.
