The Pastel Academy is a new venture that has been developed by pastel artist Heather Harman. Heather & Unison Colour have worked together for many years so we were delighted to be asked to be one of the main sponsors alongisde Jackson's Art Supplies.
Why has The Pastel Academy been developed?
Over the past 3 years, Heather has been researching way in which she can reach the largest number of people with quality information that would be just as effective as if they were participating in a live workshop. The Pastel Academy would allow for;
- No travel
- Provide access to a growing resource of courses & information about pastel (drawing & painting) at any time
- Provide a backup resources of fundamental information in the form of drawing/sketching/painting basics
- Provide a supportive community to help individuls learn & grow as artists
The Pastel Academy aims to become the hub of all information that is pastel related & will feature courses in all aspects of pastel from pastel pencil drawing to full soft pastel painting. These will cover all subject areas such as portrait (animal & human), landscape, still life, floral. full drawing & sketching tuition.
As one of the premium creators of soft pastel Unison Colour will be sponsoring an academy place for 1 year. This means a lucky individual will receive their membership costs the The Pastel Academy covered by us, as well as receive one of our classic sets to start them on their pastel journey. To be in with a chance to win this coverted prize, the winner will be drawn from a landscape competition (details to be shared soon). Although the academy is open to all, this sponsorship place will be offered to novice pastel artists.
