How To Start Your Lessons

Step 1. I designed the lessons to help you start with the basics and paint more difficult pieces toward the end. Each lesson contains several videos and demos to watch and then paint along.

Step 2. Stop the video whenever you need to – it’s one of the greatest things about learning this way. Plus you don’t need to take notes! Take your time, but not really. I want you to speed up a bit so you can start to develop the “whole” piece all at once. Do it differently. If it feels uncomfortable, you’re likely on the right track.

Step 3. Don’t feel funny about copying my pieces! It’s a time – honored way to learn and I know you’ll develop your own “style” in due course. I give you lots of ways to take off on your own and expand on the demos/lessons. If you post a lesson piece on social media be sure to mention that it’s the result of a lesson from me. I would really appreciate it and avoids any confusion amongst your peers.

Meet Marla

Meet The Inspiring Pastelist Who Created PastelPaintingLessons.com

Marla is an incredibly talented fine artist who works with galleries throughout the US. Every year she travels the globe teaching workshops, speaking at art events to inspire other painters. Last year she launched a new website to the public with the purpose of helping thousands of struggling artists to succeed.

“My Working process is a simple one; I start on location, sketching, photographing and painting. Some of these field studies make their way to the studio.

In the studio I use all of that visual information and combine it with the sense or feeling I had for a location and create what is inevitably an abstraction of sorts in that it is not merely a copy of a photo but an interpretation of place. I hope that you enjoy the work!” 

-Marla Baggetta

Bonus #1: "Poems Not Novels" - This video workshop will give you tons of inspiration and real life actionable steps towards getting that “magic” something into your work. It’s not magic! If you want pieces that read like fanciful poems, not boring novels, then join Marla for this special sojourn into the wonderland of pastel painting!

Bonus #2: "Getting Started, Back To Basics, Supplemental Videos" - Use these bonus videos to get started and enhance your painting technique as you complete each lesson.

Lessons about blending will make you think about when you want to blend and when it might be better just to keep your hands out of it! Other videos on color theory and scaling a thumbnail sketch teaches you basic skills you need to help you improve and follow along the lessons more easily.

What is included each lesson?

Each lesson contains a main paint-along demonstration from Marla, a materials list, a PDF with written instructions, and shorter supplemental videos to help with specific concepts in the main lesson.

How much do lessons cost?

Lessons are at $325 for the entire Lesson Library (that’s $15.50 per lesson regularly priced at $27 per lesson)..  If you want to take the lessons weekly, It's still a great deal at 37% off! - $17/weekly lesson (normally $27 per lesson).
