Pastels Online Art Course
Tutored by Monika Cilmi BA, MA, PGCE.
The Pastels Course is a Certificate Course
This course provides a flexible and enjoyable means of developing your artistic talent through the medium of Pastels, with tutor feedback on your coursework. We cover all the practical issues related to drawing and painting with pastels.
When working with pastels, it's essential to understand that
the magic happens when colours are skilfully combined on the paper rather than
on the palette. Achieving the unique and captivating effects of pastel art
involves the art of overlaying and skilful colour blending.
Pastels have unique characteristics which make them a favoured
choice among artists, offering a distinctive and expressive way to create
stunning and visually striking artwork.
Pastels are very exciting to work with –
- They are known for their rich,
pure, and vibrant colours. You can directly apply these colours to the paper,
allowing for intense and immediate colour impact.
- Pastels can be used for various
techniques, from delicate and fine lines to broad strokes and blending. They
are adaptable to different styles of art, including realism, impressionism, and
abstract art and this course looks at how to use pastels for theses styles.
- Pastels allow for an intimate and
expressive creative process as they are a very tactile medium.
- Pastels are also very portable
making them an ideal medium for artists who enjoy working outdoors.
If you're eager to receive expert guidance and valuable
feedback that will help you build a strong foundation in pastel art, this
course is tailor-made for you!
Students are able to upload their artwork to the 'The Art Room' on our website. Each student is
given a unique username and password on enrolment for their own private area in
The Art Room.
Students can upload their artwork for the tutor to collect and
critique. The tutor will then upload feedback for the student to download. If
you do not have facilities to upload your artwork, you can mail your artwork to
the tutors centre and receive your artwork back with your critique.
It is essential you label all
packages/artwork with your student number.
All our courses are written to be your comprehensive guide into
each of their subject matters. We understand that students appreciate
clarification about various aspects of their work from a course tutor, whom
provide reassurance that techniques are put into practice effectively.
Each courses has its own dedicated Tutor. The tutor keeps the
course up to date and relevant to today's students. They are available to the
individual student for advice and encouragement. Each course has regular
exercises and assignments that are constructed in such a way as to give the
student the opportunity to practice the techniques learnt on the course and to
test themselves as they go along. Students are encouraged to submit the
assignment work to the college for the tutor to critique.
Coursework can be submitted online, as digital photographs, in your individual art room account and the tutor will upload their critique for you to download and retain forever.
On many courses the assignment work may be suitable for inclusion in a student's Portfolio of Work that could be very useful later. The college will use the assignments submitted as the basis for your award of a certificate.
On successful completion of this course you will have studied new skills and gained knowledge for your own enjoyment and development.

I was feeling very stuck in my art work when I started the course and Monika's feed back was very helpful and I felt much more confident at the end of the course. Thank you so much.
I was so impressed at the promptness and comprehensiveness given with the feedback I received from Monika. It was very professional and helpful. I'm so sad to say Goodbye to my pastel journey with the LAC but I'm sure I will be back very soon. Thank You for a wonderful experience.
Monika's feedback was very helpful and positive.
Just to say thank you for your lovely comments and help during the course. I enjoyed it very much and am encouraged to continue to sketch and improve.
I would just like to say that I have really enjoyed this course and the support I received throughout.
