Location: Bienarte (the home of Brisbane Painting Classes), Albion. Brisbane.

About this class

This two-day workshop is especially designed for the adult beginner or intermediate who wants to learn more about painting landscapes with pastels. The class will include charcoal drawing, tonal studies, mark-making and colour selection based on the provided reference image and we will paint together in a fully tutored step-by-step process. At the end of the workshop you’ll have two completed Landscape paintings to take home.

What will I learn?

Learn how to use tone and colour with pastels, discover the diversity of drawing and painting with the same medium, see how different strokes can create varied textures and learn about the layering process. This workshop is fully tutored and guided with Jeanne Cotter; it’s fun, educational, satisfying and a wonderful way to tap into your art in a safe and peaceful environment. Find out how to use soft pastels to paint clouds, sky, mountains, hills and grass, you don’t need any experience and it’s perfect for beginners.

Who is the Workshop suitable for?

Lynne said: “Thank you Jeanne for a delicious weekend. It was so great to be able to leave the world behind and have the time and courage to do something just for me. Women do not allow themselves time to simply ‘play’… we all lead busy lives but to feel completely satisfied we need space to follow our dreams without fear of failure. Jeanne is an incredibly gentle and giving teacher… so encouraging and so talented. I’ll be back!”

Cath said: “Jeanne’s art classes are an oasis in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you’ve ever considered trying an art class, don’t wait another day, give it a try and fall under the spell of delicious pastels and Jeanne’s excellent tutorage.”
