Pastel workshops at Stewarts, Wimborne

A lovely day at Stewarts with the pastel group. We're covering topics including animals, landscapes and seascapes, even using holiday photos as inspiration. If you have a desire to draw it, Nina will help you achieve that goal. There are a mixture of beginners and experienced artists, everyone achieves a good result with pastels. Materials are provided for complete beginners whilst you decide if it's the media for you.

During Half Term we were joined by some younger members. Normally at school, they came along with grand parents and parents to have a go at pastels and draw alongside us. We had a great day and think we'll run some further courses for adults and children in the summer.
