David Newman-White returns to Rosby in 2018 for a 2-day workshop aimed at exploring the human form using a range of pastel-based mediums. You’ll be guided through a number of pastel drawing techniques, before going on to create your very own portrait drawing of that someone special in your life.

Participants are required to bring along images of someone they wish to draw - whether it be mother, father, children or a favourite pet.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience.
