FEB/MARCH - Pastel Painting Workshop with Ann Steer


The one-day workshop provides an opportunity to spend the day focusing on pastel painting and caters to a range of different skill levels. Whether you’re looking to improve on already-existing skills or just dip your toe into something new, the workshop program provides a relaxed happy environment to learn about pastel painting. 

At each workshop I will begin by giving a demonstration and then you will commence on your own piece. I will continue to guide you throughout the course of the workshop. I have many photographs that you can choose from for your inspiration or alternatively please feel free to bring your own photograph.
