I am looking for a good chalk pastel course and after that an oil pastel course. Often artists are not the best teachers, but there are a few that are particularly good. 

For drawing there is Betty Edwards drawing on the right side of the Brain. 
Frank Clarke for watercolours 
Mark Carder for oil painting. 

It is not that you want to produce art like them, but when you have finished their course you know how to handle the medium to produce your own art. So something that explains about paper choice, paper colours, pastel colours techniques for landscapes and portraits would be excellent 

So please point me in the direction of a book, dvd or online course that really explains how to use chalk pastels. If it is free that is even better. 

Thank you very much.
