Charcoal & Pastels
With its flowing nature, a person can cover a large surface quickly but can also create a refined line with the same block. Because of this, many people still tend to use charcoal and pastels as their sketching medium of choice.
The process of using this medium can be a very freeing activity that brings us back to the traditional days of fine art. This month, we are providing you with all the materials you need to create some beautiful, yet subtle pieces of fine art. Let your creativity take over this month with our charcoal and pastel projects!
