Video Classes

Purchase and download video art classes to view and paint in your own space and time.

Each video has been filmed during my weekly online classes and made available for you right here!  They are un-edited and raw, so you’ll feel like you’re in a live class (warts and all). Each one is a minimum of two hours long and most include two parts of a class, the first part covers drawing the subject in charcoal and focusing on the proportions and tonal scale. The second part of each class is a tutorial on painting the same image in pastel, so you get to paint or draw it twice! Unlike short tutorials available freely, these video classes take you through the whole process of painting with charcoal and pastel to completion, step by step with me. 

The videos are $15 each, they won’t expire and you can watch them many times over, pause or repeat as you please. 

Click on the video of your choice to purchase and download. Remember, there is no expiry date, so you can watch and pause and watch again as often as you like.

All videos are $15 each, except for the first on the list; Intro to Pastels of 5 Classes, this one is $75 (and an excellent way to learn the basics).

Here are a few comments from people who have tried my videos and keep coming back for more…

“Thank-you for this mornings online lesson – it was exactly what I’d hoped it would be – a notch up on your excellent Introduction to Pastels Video Course. I really appreciate  your calm and encouraging teaching style ( and your obvious love of soft pastels!) and the way you talk us through using them in a solid  framework of necessary art techniques. Your classes are what I have been looking for and had not found in any of the promotional  workshop or subscription sites online. I look forward to more!” Regards  Victoria 2023

‘I had the good fortune of watching Jeanne paint a colourful Rooster during a recent online class. What a treat. Her style is relaxed and playful, yet she manages to explain each step along the way in a confident and skilled manner. I’ve watched any number of online classes during this crazy pandemic: Jeanne Cotter is definitely in my top ten. Hope she does more!!” Linda T/USA 2021

“Thanks Jeanne. I really love the online video class so much because I can take my time with no time constraints. Also, I  walk away for a bit every now and again which helps me to give more input into the drawing with your comprehensive directions.” Mariam, 2020

“I feel happy knowing that if my roster clashes with your classes, I have the recorded lessons. I am addicted to pastels – thanks for making art achievable.” Nicole, 2020

‘I cannot tell you how amazed I am with my rooster. I have never used pastels or even done any drawing before. I know he may not be perfect but he is perfect to me . Amazing class online. Thank you again.’ Jolanda, 2020

‘I love your video classes, I can pause or stop any time. You are a brilliant teacher. Thank you!’ Samantha, 2020
