Oil Pastel Techniques, Wed 15th Apr, 1-3pm, 5-12yrs


Due to the current health concerns we have changed all our workshops to online!! We are still keeping our numbers low so that our teachers will have time to interact with each student and give feedback on their work.

Learn how to use this common medium to create vibrant and beautiful artworks.

Oil pastels sit in the category of media that everyone has used at kindy, or primary school and so often gets dismissed as a childish medium that real artists don’t use, when in reality this beautiful medium has it’s own vibrant qualities that other mediums can’t achieve. In this workshop Ella will walk you through some application and blending techniques so your oil pastel drawings can be just as beautiful as any painted artworks.
