Pastel Workshops in South Devon and North Dorset

The weekend Pastel Workshops at Harbour House mean that you can have a more relaxed approach to your painting without the pressure of feeling you have to do as much as possible in one day.  In a way  the same applies to the Full Day workshops in Dorset, the half days giving you basic knowledge and techniques, and handling and mark making with this very versatile medium.  A full day workshop gives you to opportunity to achieve a worthwhile and, hopefully, satisfactory painting in the time available.  Above all, it is a relaxed and fun day !  At present there are no weekend workshops in Dorset – but watch this space!

At the Harbour House weekend workshops you go home (eventually!) at the end of Saturday, leaving your easel ready to start again on the Sunday. And that’s where the fun starts …….You will be able to start something different, watch a demonstration on how to handle perspectives, or use a limited palette, as well as gleaning some tips from your Tutor who loves to share his knowledge and experience with his students.

The purpose of these workshops is to help each individual to develop their own pastel painting style using their own choice of subject. They cater for raw beginners as well as those with experience of this most exciting and forgiving of mediums.

The weekend Pastel workshops have come about as a result of popular demand, but they also cater for individuals who prefer to come for one day only. The sessions are limited to 8 students, giving Keith the opportunity to provide more individual tuition and attention.
