The Art Barn,
Newell Street, Cairns
Phone: 4054 6555

COST: $30 per session

Starting with a basic introduction to pastel materials, surfaces, techniques and
application we will explore the range and versatility of this appealing and versatile medium.

From initial small exercises and experiments students will gradually be encouraged to develop their own artworks learning by discovery and example as the classes progress. Students will receive individual attention to suit their needs. Landscapes, seascapes and skies will be the initial focus.

MATERIALS
PASTELS : All and every hard and soft pastel sticks and pastel pencils you have, all brands. (No oil pastels)
PASTEL PAPER : Mi Tentes TEX, or Art Spectrum COLOURFIX are the most preferable and easily available from most art supply shops. Any mid tone colours are suitable and useful depending on the subject you paint.
REFERENCE MATERIAL: I will provide subject matter for the initial and early exercises. However, once you begin working on your own subject it is preferable that you provide your own material, your own photos as opposed to photos or reference from magazines, calenders etc
GENERAL: Rags or tea-towels to clean hands, putty rubber, masking tape, old newspaper to catch dust.

A full range of pastel colours and brands, papers and surfaces can be purchased from the Art Barn, as required. (Some materials will be available for total beginners to try for a fee of $5)
