Hooked on Pastels Weekend Workshop

Saturday 7th-Sunday 8th November 2020

In November 2020 join internationally recognised landscape artist Marion Towns for two days of pastel heaven! Marion’s high level of technical skill and her striking choice of colours epitomises the New Zealand summer perfectly!

Enjoy plein air landscape sketching (weather permitting) – you’ll learn how to develop versatile methods for creating ‘field sketches’. Marion will then guide you in translating your field sketches into a finished artwork. On Sunday, learn how to fine tune your soft pastel techniques. Participants will gain confidence using soft pastels, and leave with one or two completed pastel paintings and a piece of our lovely Collingwood Art Haven!
