Welcome to Terry Ludwig Pastels

From our hands to yours, we make award winning, handmade pastels in more than 500 colors. Created for artists, by artists!

Several years ago Terry Ludwig began creating his own rectangular shaped pastels to achieve the array of colors he needed, combined with the ability to use the edge of a pastel to create more detailed art. Terry Ludwig Pastels sells to artists all over the world.

A lifelong artist, Terry loves teaching and interacting with other artists. He has been invited to conduct workshops throughout America. Terry received his formal art education under William Mosby and Joseph Vanden Broucke at the American Academy of Art in Chicago.
