Learn and grow with the world's best Pastel Artists

Each month you’ll get brand new tuition from a selection of our Associate Artists.

Learn how to select the most appropriate pastel paper for your style and application.

Learn how to blend the smoothest backgrounds without overloading the paper.

Learn about materials and equipment, and how to set up your studio like a pro!

What will you find at the Pastel Academy?

Unison Colour works with over 70 Associate Artists from around the world – each with their own styles and areas of expertise.  That means we’re in a unique position to offer you such a broad range of soft pastel tuition.

We’ve seen how much you’ve learned in our 5 Day Challenges – so we thought we could go one better and provide you with brand new online workshops and training content every month.

Each month we’ll have a hand picked selection of brand new and exclusive online trainings, workshops, PDF guides and live Q&A’s.

We’ll make sure there’s a range of tuition materials to suit all experience levels – from absolute pastel beginners to professional artists. There’s bound to be something for everyone every month.

We’ve also set up a new members-only Pastel Academy Facebook group – where we can all discuss what we’ve learned, get access to the artist tutors and share our experiences.
