    “I love that I was able to jump right in as a beginner and feel free to play with this new art medium for me. It has so many lessons to watch and explore. Just having access to watching Kellee go through the process of creating these oil pastel paintings has sparked a new joy in my days! There is so much material in this course....I will be creating, learning and experiencing the joy for months!!”

  • Kellee Wynne Studios

    “I am an oil painter so this works brilliantly for me to try out ideas on a small scale for larger paintings and it can be done fast - 15 minutes at the dining room table. ”

  • Kellee Wynne Studios

    “The ‘Magic of Oil Pastels‘ is a very complete course which is a joy to follow . It gave me lots of creative ideas . I get a little stuck on the blank page sometimes . Now I just danse with all those amazing Colors on my pad/ paper with my fingers et voilà !

    I have never really mastered oil pastels before but I am really getting the idea now. I cannot recommend it enough!”

  • Kellee Wynne Studios

    “I finally got the myongo pastels I ordered, and sat down to create painting #12/100, a landscape. As I was creating I was filled with so much gratitude to have found Kellee's course as finally I am able to create the landscape paintings I've been dreaming of in a time frame that is doable!

    The title of the course is perfect, because it truly is magic as one sees small works of art emerge from just oil pastels, paper, and of course Kellee's instruction and generosity of information.”

  • Kellee Wynne Studios

    “Two years ago when Kellee released The Magic of Oil Pastels, I signed up. My life changed forever.

    I believe that the class was instrumental in moving my art to a new level.

    I have watched all of the amazing art that is being created and I pulled my pastels out today and played. It has been awhile since I sat down and created a piece using oil pastels. I made a promise to myself to complete 100 oil pastels. I am about halfway there.....Getting back into the swing, remembering the joy. Play and practice.

    Kellee is amazing!!!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Oil Pastels?

Why Not? Seriously they are so versatile, easy to get started, and perfect for testing out composition and designs for bigger paintings. But really, my favorite part is using them in mixed media for that extra pop of color.

Why is it called painting when there's no "paint"?

It's really about how the material is used and how it covers the entire surface of the paper. And honestly, doesn't it look like a painting when it's finished?

I need a basic set! Which one?

I do a complete review of brands and which ones work best and why inside the course and you’ll find out quite quickly that the student grade oil pastels are not worth your time. The short of it is I will always recommend Caran d’Ache oil pastels and you can find my optional supply list on my Amazon Storefront

What tools do you use for blending?

My fingers! In all honesty I just love blending with my hands. But usually the best way to blend is with another pastel itself. That’s why I go through so much white. There are lots of blending tools on the market, but I know very little about how to use them effectively because I prefer my fingers.

How do you keep them from smearing?

Oil pastels are a bit finicky for displaying. Because they never fully dry, you usually need to display them behind glass with a matboard. However, I have learned that the marks do oxidize over time (the oil evaporates) and I can spray a fixative and then a spray varnish on my canvases so that they can be hung without glass.

How do you clean up from oil pastels? Do you need mineral spirits?

Nope. Just buy a bag of scent-free baby wipes and you’re good to go for all your clean-up needs, including your hands!

  • Kellee Wynne Studios

    “I have never known how to use my beautiful Sennelier oil pastels, which I owned for many years. I came across The Magic of Oil Pastels in an accidental but serendipitous way!! And thus begins another love!!

    Kellee's enthusiasm, guidance, support and encouragement is at a high level!! Her course is jam packed with videos and instructions. I've only done a few lessons so far...but oh my, even to a novice like me with this medium, I think these little sticks of colour have no limits!!

    Thank you Kellee Wynne Studios for sharing so much!!!”

  • Kellee Wynne Studios

    “With very little background in art, this class let me create beautifully from the first video. The instruction is clear and helpful and the videos really guide you through technique without a lot of talk or 'information' that gets in the way.

    I got right into it and am in love with the medium and am so excited about what I'm able to do within the first week or so. Wonderful investment, deep pleasure in this class. Also the Facebook group is very active and supportive. ”

  • Kellee Wynne Studios

    “I don’t really have an art background, but I wanted so much to get creative in my life. Like in a daily practice.

    With 3 kids under 5, I was in search of a medium that I could use quickly and with few supplies. Never was interested in oil pastels, until I came across The Magic of Oil Pastels and its 15-minutes art painting. I was sold!

    The course is jam packed with tips and tricks on how to use oil pastels for painting (yes, painting!). But what I love the most about the course, it’s the freedom to play Kellee gifted us. There is no pressure, no dos and don’ts about her way to paint with oil pastels.

    It’s so refreshing, and inspiring! Oh, and the Facebook community is worth gold!”

  • Kellee Wynne Studios

    “I am an octogenarian mixed media artist who has had oil pastels and water soluble oil pastels parked in my supplies since my children were in school. I rarely throw out anything art related or possibly art related so I am beyond enthusiastic about this course because Kellee Wynne has shown me so many ways to use oil pastels and to combine them with everything else on hand to produce really stunning results. Her techniques and presentation are wonderful!”

  • Kellee Wynne Studios

    “I feel Kellee got the one of the best taste in colors. Thanks Kellee it’s so lucky to come across this course. Please keep doing it, never stop. Acrylic flower + oil pastel course would be great too ! Thanksss!”

Who this course is designed for:

  • If you need a kick in the pants to get started with making art again.
  • If your art practice is becoming stale and in need of new techniques to invigorate you.

  • If you are just getting started making art and don’t want to buy thousands of dollars of supplies to make a complete painting.

  • If you just like Kellee as a teacher and want to take all her courses. ;)

One thing that makes oil pastel a really great choice for starting out or making art on the go is that you need very few supplies. Just the pastels, paper and some wipes to clean your hands and you're set to make art!

Your results will improve with better supplies.

I use and recommend Caran d’Ache Oil Pastels and Legion Stonehenge Paper.

You can view my preferred supplies on my Amazon Storefront.

My tip is for beginners and experts alike.

(Not to simply repeat every other basic advice I’ve heard but this fact is universally true.)

You have to make a lot of artwork to know how to make your artwork. You even have to make bad artwork. It’s the best teacher. The more you make the more you will begin to understand what you like and don’t like, what works for you and what doesn’t, what excites your soul and what bores you...and these discoveries will lead you to where you want to go.

And as soon as you think you know, you must do it again because we are ever changing and growing.
