Patterns and Pots: Still Life in Pastels with Jan Munro
Contact course provider
About the Course
Create a contemporary and colourful still life in soft pastels under the guidance of renowned artist and tutor Jan Munro, member of The Pastel Society.
The course will begin with a look at composition ideas in Still Life, design and other artists who work in this field. A Still Life will then be set up for each student and sketches made. The drawing will then be transferred to a support. There will be demonstrations of the best use of pastel techniques before you start working on your own drawing.
Over the 2 days, students can expect to finish at least 1 completed still life pastel drawing.
