We at the Michener Art Museum pride ourselves on serving the community as a place of information, relaxation, and refuge. While we are always committed to keeping our visitors, guests, and staff healthy and safe, we are taking extra precautions right now and have decided to respect recommendations regarding social distancing to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. So, it comes with great sadness, that we have decided to close the Museum to the public beginning today, March 13 at 4:30 pm through Monday, March 30th at 4:30 pm. All classes, lectures, tours, and public programs have been postponed or cancelled during this time period. We will be closely monitoring the situation and will evaluate the re-opening currently scheduled for Tuesday, March 31, as this date is subject to change based on conditions.
The remaining sessions for this class have been cancelled.
NEW! Pastel I
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.
