Our studio offers soft pastel art lessons for adults and children. The lessons are held on Tuesdays during the group art lessons. Students will learn and experience working with soft pastels sketching and drawing. All art supplies and materials are included.
Our favorite kind of pastel are soft type pastels. These pastels are the traditional form of pastel pencils and also the most used. They have a very high concentration of pigment that is held together by the least amount of gum binder as possible. Please note that soft pastels are crumble very easily, but their colors are wonderful and bright.
Soft pastels are composed of pigment, water and a smaller amount of chalk or artificial binder. The soft texture of these pastels created unbelievably beautiful art compositions! The final results are smooth, have smudgy lines and intense colors.
Please note that soft pastels cannot be mixed on a palette (to create a different colors like we do with watercolor or acrylics) and for this reason we use an extensive range of colors.
