Virtual Event Virtual Event

July 11 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm CDT


Tweens and Teens are welcome in this class

Oil pastels are one of those happy mediums between drawing and painting! With a few gestures, marks, and some blending techniques you can create painterly works ready for framing and experience some instant art making gratification. 

In this introduction class you learn some basic techniques and enjoy a morning of making. Gather a landscape or inspiring pic, there’s no wrong reference to get you going, you can even get wild and make it up!
