The Oil Pastel Course – Introduction and Materials — 9 Comments

  1. This looks good, i enjoyed following along with the cherries on gettin sketchy, and the trees from the lesson recording during lockdown. I liked this intro music too, thank you

  2. I’m so thrilled that there is now a specific course dedicated to oil pastels. I have been waiting for an art establishment (online or local) to feature this underrated/unrepresented art material. Thank you so much!

  3. I’ve been trying to preview the oil pastels course (lessons 1-2), but every time I attempt to download the eBooks, I’m redirected to the membership signup page. I’m already a member, but the system doesn’t seem to want to know that. Am I missing something?

    • Hi Riuichi,

      You canceled your subscription and your access to the membership program ended on September 1. These modules are currently available for viewing as a preview but ebook downloads require an active membership.

  4. Dear Matt,

    I love this new course. Though I haven’t tried oil pastels yet, there is so much to learn anyhow. Guess, I will follow this course using soft pastels instead.

    I really appreciate the way, the use of each and every new medium introduced starts right from the very beginning, so one can just dive in where it seems most appropriate to oneself.

    Thank you so much for all the effort and time, you put in each lesson.

    Best greetings, Buddy
