Oil Pastel Art Lessons

Seasons Art Class Module 2: Our Oil Pastel Drawing Course

Our expansive 14-week art course is designed for beginners and improvers. Following on from pencil drawing, module two of our syllabus will give you an understanding of painting with oil pastels.

Oil pastel lessons for beginners are exciting and fun. Not only are oil pastels vivid in colour and rich in texture but they are also very expressive and freeing when you use them. If ever you thought these were like crayons, think again! These are a portable alternative to oil paint – the brainchild of Picasso!
