Colour and light were the keys to success for Impressionist artists. The focus was to capture the essence of a scene without too many details.

Inspired by French Impressionist, Claude Monet, we will spend time exploring the techniques used by Impressionist artists. Using chalk pastels you will draw beautiful Summer landscape scenes with a focus on colour and light.

Techniques include:

  • Blending and layering colours
  • How to use chalk pastels for a ‘painterly’ effect
  • The best mark making tips for chalk pastels such as scumbling and feathering
  • How to loosen up your drawing style

All materials are included.

Beginners are always welcome in our relaxed and supportive classes.

The carpark outside the building is reserved for staff only until 6pm (including weekends) and you need a permit to park here. The nearest street parking is just over the bridge along the river on either Taff Embankment or Taffs Mead Embankment. This is charged with meters so do check signs but it is a very short walk from here to the studio. We are also just a 10 minute walk from Cardiff Central train station so easily accessible by public transport. If you do require parking on site we have two visitor permits that can be used by students with prior arrangement but visitor parking is limited and cannot be guaranteed.
