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 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.
