This course is held on Thursday 10 March from 7.00pm to 9pm (GMT) and is suitable for students of beginner and intermediate abilities. Students outside the UK are welcome! 

We will use soft pastels in combination with other media and explore how this allows us to play with different atmospheres, moods and contrasts. We will draw our personal interior (living room, for example) from the ‘outside looking in’ (a window view for example), learning how to divide our drawing into two elements and focusing on creating contrasting moods through this exercise. 

We will elaborate on colour by creating various colour schemes and develop a more in-depth approach to building up layers. Participants are also challenged to think of a narrative when working (either working from direct observation or using photographs taken beforehand).
