I have a new series of classes beginning April 16 at the NJ Visual Arts Center in Summit. The class is designed for artists interested in learning the basics of working with pastels. Students will learn about using pastels on a variety of surfaces, layering soft and hard pastels, and using them with other media such as acrylics. The class runs for 10 weeks on Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to noon. For more information and to register, visit the NJ Visual Arts Center web site.
