This class runs from January 18th until Feb 15th on Thursday afternoons at 1:00pm – 3:30pm (5 classes) . If this class is full, you may phone us at 306 653 1900 to add your name to a wait list.

This class is an introduction to soft pastels where students will learn and explore materials, tools, mark-making, and composition, practice their observational skills, plan paintings through notans and colour thumbnails, and use different pastel techniques to bring their paintings to life. Students will work from a still life which is challenging, but attainable, for all skill levels and lends itself nicely to soft pastel. Some drawing experience is recommended.
