Jane Penfield Pastel Workshop

Jane Penfield Pastel Workshop – March 2024

Dating from the Sixteenth Century, pastels enthrall with their vibrant colors and beautiful textures. Talented artist Jane Penfield guides us through an amazing five hour hands-on workshop on landscapes with pastels. Jane begins with a wet underpainting, and then develops the imagery with layers of pastel.

The workshop is on Saturday, March 16, 2024 from 10am to 3pm. It will have a maximum of 10 students to ensure one-on-one time with Jane. This workshop helps you develop your own image – you bring the source image you wish to work on, and Jane will guide you through the techniques. Each student works on their own image during the course of this day. The source image must be wholly your own (not an Internet-sourced image).

This workshop requires that you bring your own supplies including soft pastels (NOT oil pastels), pastel paper, easel, and a drawing board. A full recommended supply list can be found here:


The Whitin Mill is not near any fast food restaurants. It’s recommended you bring in any snacks, lunch, and drinks you wish to have during the class time.

Cost: $65 each for the full class, if we have 10 students. We currently have 6 students. Please share the news!

Limited spaces are available – contact us to reserve your space!

  1. Do you need all of the materials in the list for this workshop? It seems like more than could be used for this. If not, what won’t be used here? Thank you!
