Upcoming UART Workshops

Want to improve your pastel painting techniques? Want to get away for a weekend and paint with like minded fellow pastel artists? Then come and attend a UART workshop near you! Not only you will learn from some of the best pastel artists in the country, but we will guarantee you will have fun and leave the workshop with new friends and UART goodies. We like to limit the capacity of our workshops so you can get all the attention you need from the teachers, so book your space early as our workshops do sell out very quickly.
