Chalking Up Narratives: An Introduction to Pastels

Main View

Join artist Raksha Patel for an introduction to pastels, drawing inspiration from Tate's collection to create your own stories

We will be experimenting with a range of drawing techniques exploring the versatility of marks and textures made by using chalk pastels.

The inspiration for our drawings will stem from pastel drawn works in the Tate collection by artists such as Sonia Boyce, Paula Rego and Walter Sickert.

The session includes materials to take home with you, including a set of Winsor & Newton: Edgar Degas Pastels, produced in collaboration with Tate.

This session is for adults aged 16 and over.
