18A320 - Oil Pastels

18A320 - Oil Pastels

Oil pastels have a soft and buttery feel and are fun and rewarding to work with. They are made from pure pigment, non drying oils and waxes. The color effects and textures that can be achieved with this medium are stunningly beautiful and captivating. Students will learn to: 1. Prepare the substrate and apply underpainting; 2. Blend pastels to create three-dimensional effects; 3. Work with Holbein and Sennelier oil pastels to develop layering techniques; 4. Use tools to scrape away or subtract oil pastel to reveal previous layers for color and textural interest; 5. Add oil pastel with various tools to build up the painting's surface and color quality; 6. Understand the use of line and mark-making for visual interest; 7. Consideration of color theory concepts as they relate to layering with oil pastels; 8. Understand composition, negative and positive space, shapes, and the placement of objects; 9. Learn the dialog of self-critique. We will also learn how to collect ideas in our sketchbooks for paintings and how to unleash our imaginations. This will include quick graphite pencil sketching techniques, and how to transfer the ideas from a sketchbook to a painting. Must have had some art experience, either at school or as a hobby.
