Join our group of friendly creatives and nourish your mind and soul. Our focus is building a foundation in drawing and painting skills. This pastel session will prepare us for oil painting! 

Our first class will be an orientation to cover new materials, how to choose your subject, and a lesson on perspective drawing.

New students will enjoy learning to mix color and learn to see values and texture as an artist and will work in pastel for their first piece to gain a foundation before moving into wet media.

Skills learned will translate to future projects so students can continue building upon their experience and gaining confidence. There is no experience necessary. Students will have one-on-one guidance throughout the process and through completion.

Please note: Another group of 6 sessions will be offered (at an additional charge) for students wishing to continue on their next work of art; or those desiring more time to complete their current piece.
