Sunday, February 10, 2019 from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

This is not a multi-session class; every session is separate and priced at $35 each.

Not sure if you are going to like pastels? Come in for a short intro class with pastel professional Mary Jane Erard. Unlike our four-hour pastel workshops, all materials will be provided. No experience is required and absolute beginners are welcome!

New for 2019!! This class is now 2.5 hours long, and you have the option to learn Soft pastel and Oil Pastel. Mary Jane will demonstrate one or both materials + methods depending on student interest. Students will then have the opportunity to use her materials and create a painting in either Oil or Soft pastel.
