About this workshop

Join Jeanne Cotter in the world of amazing pastel painting! Jeanne’s passion with pastels is infectious and will leave you wanting more!

The morning will include drawing a basic colour wheel for the students to experience blending, mixing complimentary colours on the paper and learning about primary and secondary colours, then we will paint a subject (such as an apple or pear) and use a blending and layering process.
