Art without Paint: pastels and charcoal with Nola Cameron Nov 12 -19

Using the directness and vibrancy of pastels, you’ll learn to create works that capture atmosphere and light in a moment in time. You’ll be studying seascapes, landscapes and flowers and foliage. Charcoal is an equally fascinating medium. It encourages you to look at line, tone and texture. It’s a free, flexible art form which can be expressive and bold or mysterious and subtle.
