Event details

Bring your family! Artists of all ages will flourish in an atmosphere of play, experimentation and individual artistic expression.  We’ll start by seeing the world through each others’ eyes, and then create individual interpretations in dry pastels.  Using shapes, colors and marks unique to this uniquely vibrant medium, you’ll  get encouraging guidance and personalized attention which will guide artistic development.

There will be a break for lunch on your own.

Instructor will provide supplies: for family of 2- $25, family of 3-$30, Family of 4- $40, etc. paid directly to Instructor on the day of the class.
