SELF STUDY SHORT COURSES.

These courses each have a theme. They are stand alone courses but of course each one will add to the understanding of the painting process of our wonderful pastels. They explore differing subjects under differing skylight both inland and coastal. This is an opportunity to paint in your own time, no matter where you live. The lessons are all videos made by Lyn and she shares and guides you with the methods she has found to work so well during her 30 + years with soft pastel. These lessons differ from Zoom lessons as there are no painting assessments or live discussion. 
Self Study Courses are either single subjects, short or longer topic series
Clouds -6 lessons
Salt Water 1 - 4 lessons
Dark Water in the High Country - single subject with 2x bonus lessons.
Sunlit Shallows - single subject with extra mini session.
Students have private access 24-7 for 12 months so can work at their own pace. Further classes are being added regularly.
