The New Pastel School Courses

Nel Whatmore and I created The New Pastel School after years of friendship and mutual respect for each other’s work. The courses offer the unusual experience of having two experienced pastel artists sharing the tuition, and combining our expertise and great enthusiasm for this versatile and exciting medium. As tutors and demonstrators we can help people see that there are always different ways to do things, even when working with the same pastels. Courses are available for all abilities.

As well as learning skills and processes, students are inspired by demonstrations and encouraged to find their own way to work with the medium and develop their individual skills. Subject matter varies, as between us, Nel and I have years of experience painting figures, portraits, animals, flowers, landscapes, still life, architecture and abstracts. We both feel that whatever the subject, its life, emotion and energy can be captured with pastels.
