New Pastel Class

James Reynolds will teach a pastel class in March, 9 and 10, in the Central Activities Center. “Exploring Pastel” is a workshop for beginners to advanced students. Each day will begin with a demonstration in design, color and materials. Students will work individually in class and receive personal instruction.

Focus of instruction will be on color choices based on temperature and value. Other topics will include pastel layering, composition, problem solving, tools and materials, how to work from photographs, etc.

Cost of the workshop is $160 for the two days. Contact Dan Fishman to register at

James is also doing a demonstration painting at the Berger Center on Friday March 8th at 6:30 pm.
