Studio Art Policies



10:00 AM-12:30 PM





September 26, 2023 – December 5, 2023
Tuesdays: 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Note: No classes on November 21

Pastel is an exciting medium with seductive color yielding relatively quick results. Artists will learn techniques for handling and layering pastels to achieve soft blended transitions of color as well as heavier textures. Students will be able to choose their own subject matter, such as a still life arrangement set up in the studio, landscape, animal or pet portraits, florals arrangements, painting from a photo, and more. Fundamentals of light and shadow, form, value, composition, and atmosphere will be integrated into each project to improve current skills. Led by instructor Francesca Pelaggi.

Classes will include demonstrations as well as individual instruction for all students. Beginner students may have supplies provided for them by the instructor if they wish to “try before you buy” for a small additional fee. Ask the Art Coordinator about this option when paying for the class. All levels are welcome!
