March 6th 2022 – Flowers in Soft Pastel

An art workshop for those with who love flowers, colour and a desire to explore soft pastels.

Location – The Beautiful Horowhenua – Levin, New Zealand

Sunday 6th March 2022 – 10.00am – 3.00pm

Summer is here and with it all the beautiful colours of floral summer! I can’t help but be drawn to the bright spectrum of colours in my basket of soft pastels as I ponder what my art workshop attendees would enjoy at this time of the year. Some experience is helpful but not a necessity for this workshop as I will be taking you step by step through the process of creating a bright floral piece.

Techniques covered on the course:

  • a little colour theory (nothing too heavy)
  • layering
  • composition
  • contrast
  • blocking in and detail

I choose to tutor small groups so limit workshop numbers to 6-8 maximum. To register and confirm your place on this workshop please complete the contact form, or email me direct at or contact me through my Facebook page: Gill Allen NZ Artist.

Placement on the course is secured upon receipt of the workshop fee – $95 (materials included). Should demand exceed workshop numbers a further workshop may be scheduled.

Participants please bring…

  • Apron or old shirt
  • latex gloves if you are sensitive
  • your lunch (tea and coffee is provided)
  • an open and explorative mind 🙂
