Over three days, you will learn Degas’s impressionist pastel drawing techniques, and the history of the celebrated artist plus other famous pastel works by Degas’s contemporaries. Degas is famous for his pastel drawings and during this masterclass, our expert tutor will teach the colours he used, the layering technique through hatching and his genius compositional skills. Degas was a master of pastel drawing, and this is a unique opportunity to learn the vital stages of his method through speed drawing and more extended study of his works and still life. Unlock your potential with pastel drawings and add character and colour to your Impressionist still life composition through this dedicated art masterclass.
All of our masterclasses can be learnt in our central London art studio at Sunny Art Centre or remotely online via our live online teaching platform.
