This is what Johannes’ students are saying about the online demonstrations they have attended:

“Another great class.  I have just about all of your classes and try to watch at least two a week… I really would like to try to do a paint along using PanPastel and  this class as a reference.” — James

“Thank you. I very much enjoyed your demonstration this afternoon. I have just started using pastels and PanPastel was/is totally new for me. In the early 70s I traveled abroad (Italy and the Greek Isles) and routinely was stopped with my oils…I can not wait until my just ordered pan  pastel arrived…looking forward to be one of your regular viewers…” — George

PanPastel Paintings by Johannes Vloothuis

“I am fluent in all mediums but once I came across using PanPastel, I realized that after all these centuries they finally have come up with THE MEDIUM. Imagine having the color variation you get in watercolor with the loyalty of oils in one medium combined. There is nothing like it. PanPastel deserves to be in a category if its own.”  – Johannes Vloothuis
