Learning Pathways - Drawing and Painting with Pastel

"Anyone can paint if they are given the right instructions.” - Marcel Desbiens, Master Artist and Principal Tutor

Marcel has designed learning pathways to give students structure as they develop from novice to advanced artist.

If you have limited or no experience with Pastel, then we recommend you start with Tricia Taylor who will help you learn the basics of Pastel painting in a friendly and supportive environment.

Once you have built your confidence with Pastel, it's time to develop and broaden your skills with a weekend workshop run by a guest artist, covering a range of subjects.
