Four Wednesdays, starting May 19

Expand your horizons with oil pastels, a medium similar to crayons and chalk, but with more painterly results. Participants will take on different types of still life, learning to create 3-D effects through shading and blending, before applying what they've learned to one summative work. Still Life in Oil Pastels is designed for beginners, but all levels are welcome.
