This class meets Wednesday nights, from 7 - 10 pm until August 16, 2017
6 classes in summer quarter. 

Pastel Intensive  Join us for six weeks of fun with soft pastels.  Soft pastels are a beginner's dream. They are portable, immediate, do not require toxic additives, and rework and clean up easily. Ann will show you how to make the most of pastel's pure and beautiful colors, and use them to create the luminosity for which pastels are famous. Students will be drawing real subjects either from still-life or landscapes around the Art Center. Please check with Ann individually if you are bringing your own pastels.
