Pastel Drawing Master Class

Pastel Drawing Master Class
9th and 10th November 2024

10am – 3pm

£180 (inc all materials and VAT)

Tutor – Lara Scouller

Working from a selection of bird specimens Lara will guide you through the different drawing stages, which will enable you to create your own lively pastel drawings.

During the two-day workshop Lara will introduce you to traditional and contemporary artists who have been influential in her art practice.

Insight into Lara’s drawing approach will include demonstrations of how she manipulates the pastels and provide an understanding of the way this medium lends itself to recreating colour, pattern and textures found on the surface of her subjects.

Students will experiment with techniques such as blending, scumbling, feathering, dusting and using different line qualities. Layering techniques will be explored through the use of rags and putty rubbers and through working on top of existing marks helping to create a sense of movement and energy in the drawings.

Students will embark on a series of drawings, working directly from bird specimens, exploring the bird’s structure and investigating alternative viewpoints and compositional possibilities.

The weekend will end with a group critique providing the opportunity to reflect on the work and how students might apply what they have learned to their own working practice.
