Painting Wildlife with Pastels
Tuesday 18th February (Half Term)
2.00 – 5.00pm (age 7 – 14)
£30.00 (materials included)
A wonderful workshop designed for children aged between 7-14 who have a keen interest in creating wildlife art and love learning new techniques. We will be using pastels to create a striking tiger painting, focusing on colour, fur texture and blending.
Pastels are a great medium to work with as they are so vibrant, fun to blend and easy to use! In this two hour workshop we will be learning all about:
-Building up layers
This workshop will be lead by Zoe Fitchet, a self taught wildlife and pet portrait artist living and working in Andover, Hampshire. Zoe has been working as an artist for the last ten years and in that time has become multidisciplinary, learning to use a variety of mediums. Her work focuses on realism, creating pieces that look life-life to give the viewer the experience of feeling as though the animal is in the room.
Using pastels can be messy so please dress in something that doesn’t matter if it gets a little dusty! Pastels are really fun and with the right techniques you will be able to create something beautiful.
