Learn to Draw with Pastels | Beginners and beyond with Dominique Millar

Course Overview

In this 8 week term class students will learn fundamental drawing skills using coloured chalk pastels. This class is suitable for anyone from beginner to those with prior experience who enjoys drawing or wants to learn how to draw with pastels. Students will learn fundamental drawing skills and learn how to build layers of pastel colours to convey three dimensional form, depth and mood in their drawings.

From the time of Leonardo da Vinci onwards, artists experimented with developing pastels as a means of combining the benefits of the naturally occurring drawing medium of the chalk pencil with the rich variety of pigments used in paints. Thus pastel drawing is often referred to as pastel painting.

  • work across a range of subject matter from still life, photograph and art reference material and more
  • develop fundamental drawing skills including proportion, tone and colour values.
  • use variety of coloured papers
  • learn to select a “palette” of colours for their artwork
