Pastels are a unique medium that allow you to paint without the use of a paintbrush by layering hue over hue. Explore the depth and richness of the vibrant colors; practice blending and overlaying shades to create just the right effect; or leave streaks and strokes for a more textured look in your paintings and sketches. Bring your subjects to life with this exciting medium. Painting with pastels can offer dramatic effects to any work of art! Materials required.
