Have you ever wondered if you could paint or draw?

Are you curious about what you could create?

When you were a kid did you love to draw and colour and paint?  Have you always felt there was something in you that could be arty, but low marks and a flippant remark from a teacher or friend left you feeling like art wasn’t for you… so you let it go and got on with growing up, being sensible and responsible and ignoring that yearning to create and make art. If you’ve been putting it off, now is the time to have another go. You’ve found yourself here for a reason and you never know what will happen tomorrow, so don’t die with the art still inside you.

Grab your seat today for the next Intro to Pastels Online Intensive Course!

It’s back and it’s online!

The Intro to Pastels Course is only available twice a year, so don’t delay to book your seat for the new Online Intensive format in February 2022.

I am so excited to bring this course to you in a 5 day Intensive online format. Join me for two hours a day, Monday to Friday, and learn how to use soft pastels to create soft fluffy clouds, wispy grasses and blue skies, a beautiful pear in complimentary colours, a bowl of delicious plums and a bright proud rooster. Yes, that’s right, you’ll paint all of these subjects in just 5 days and all from the comfort of your own home.

Each class is LIVE online via Zoom, so you’ll be able to participate fully, paint with me and ask questions as we go. Everyone who has done my Intro to Pastels course has loved every minute and achieved wonderful results. Just read the testimonials below…

Imagine getting to the end of the week and feeling competent and confident in your art practice and with completed pastel paintings you can be proud of.  


Join me for Soft Pastel Video Art Classes for Adults!

Jeanne Cotter

Come and learn how to use pastels to create beautiful art; we cover colour theory, blending techniques and loads of other tips and tricks as well as hands-on pastel painting and tutoring.  In each Video class we have a set subject and tutoring is step-by-step, so we paint the same thing at the same time and most of the time we get a whole painting complete in one class. Subjects vary and I cover a range of genres such as landscapes, animals, and still life. 

My Adult Pastel Video Art Classes are especially designed for beginners and intermediates, whether you’ve been painting with pastels before or have never tried them. Choose from a range of subjects including animals, scenes, still life and flowers. Each video art class runs for about 2 hours in a step-by-step paint-with-me format. Each one is raw and unedited, so you’ll feel like you’re in a real online class (which is when they were recorded). Head over to my SHOP to see what’s available.

I can’t wait to share with you what I know and love about pastels in my video classes.
