Thorough course on working with dry pastel. You will learn about the features of working with this amazing material and the creative possibilities it opens up. Pastel is an amazing material, somewhere on the border between painting and graphics.

On the one hand, dry pastel, due to its physical properties, is closest to graphic materials: charcoal, sanguine, sepia, and chalk. But, on the other hand, it has truly huge painting potential thanks to its rich palette and the ability to work with the most subtle and complex shades of color.

It is perfect for animalistic art: with pastel, you can show iridescence on scales or feathers, soft fur, and glossy surfaces of beaks and claws. And, of course, dry pastel is excellent for creating still lifes and landscapes!

Course starts on April 17th.

Classes will be held on Wednesdays at 18:30.

Course fee: 760 zl (payment is possible in installments), 690 zl when paid in one installment.
