NEW! Pastel I
Wednesdays, February 26 – March 25
2 – 4 pm
Instructor: Jody Holbert
$100 member | $120 non-member

In this two-hour workshop series, students will be introduced to the basics of pastel drawing. Adult students of any ability will have the perfect opportunity to develop or refresh skills, experiment with both oil pastel and chalk pastel processes, and become comfortable with this dynamic medium. After experimentation with color, process, mark-making, and composition, students will complete a pastel drawing.
