Pastel Workshops July 2017

Bridge at AveyronOur chalk pastel workshops are designed to allow a little more time and space than can usually be spent at Anne's normal classes. They are suitable for those with a little experience in painting and drawing but not necessarily using chalk pastels. You should be OK to come along if, for example, you have attended any of Anne's other art classes.


The cost of either workshop is £32 which must be paid in full on the day (by cash or cheque). You will need to bring along your own chalk pastels although cartridge paper and appropriate pastel paper will be supplied. The places on each of the workshops will be restricted to 12 to allow Anne plenty of time to talk to you all individually, help you with your own work and to answer any questions.


So if you feel like coming along what do you do? To book a place email Anne on or give us a call on 01438 318398 (we have an answerphone and will always ring you back).

Chalk Pastel Workshop – Bridge at Aveyron

  • Tue Jul 11 9:30 to 3:30
    Sat Jul 15 9:30 to 3:30

    The theme for the workshops is a Stone Bridge in the District of Aveyron, Southern France. Anne will bring along a completed painting of the stone bridge in pastel based on the photograph we will be working from. On the cartridge paper we will rough out a sketch using it to find the lights and darks of the painting. Then we will transfer the sketch to pastel paper and work on the texture of the stone bridge and the foliage surrounding it.


    Anne will start off the workshops with a short discussion and demonstration of how to think about and start a painting using sketches on cartridge paper. Then she will discuss where to start your painting in chalk pastel. She will be available throughout the rest of the day to guide and help you with your own work.
