Event Details:

Instructor: Mary Jane Erard
Ages: 10 to adults
Saturday, June 23rd from 11:00am - 2:00pm

Experience level: beginner- advanced. Serious kids as young as 10 are welcome to participate.

Everybody loves their pets! In this three-hour class, pastel instructor extraordinaire Mary Jane Erard will lead you through the process of sketching and drawing your pet's portrait in soft pastel. Most materials provided. Participants should buy a sheet of 9x12" sanded pastel paper (available at both Depo locations for $4.00 plus tax). Students are welcome to bring their own pastel supplies if they have some on hand, and would like MJ to teach them how to better use what they own.

Please bring a source photo of your pet, 8 1/2" X 11", in color, on "regular" thin copy paper. Mary Jane will help students draw or trace their pet on pastel paper during the first part of the of class, followed by a short demo of how to use pastel and plenty of one on one instruction. Assistance will be given to all students, as per your need. Seats are limited to 8, so please register early if you would like to participate. This class is SUPER FUN and often sells out quickly. All students, regardless of skill level, leave this workshop with a very cute pastel portrait of their pet.

***Please reference our class cancellation policy on our website.***

Please register as soon as you plan on attending. Classes that don't reach the minimum number of students required will be canceled 48 hours before the day of class.
