Mini-Workshop with Guest Artist Judy Schonebaum

September 27, 10 am – 12 noon
Mission Room, Olive Hyde Art Center

Sign up soon, as there are only 15 seats for this FREE workshop. Judy will be introducing us to Pastels. Remember loving to draw in chalk on the sidewalk or driveway?  You could blend the colors and you wouldn’t want anyone to walk on it!

Well, Judy will teach us new techniques on paper! She wants us to have fun and maybe try sketching what we see in our garden or give us some abstract exercises to try. Art should be fun, don’t you agree?

See the Pastel Workshop Supply List (below) — or make it easy on yourself: Judy will provide a Beginner’s Package with everything you will need for just $5.

Come join us… but you must reserve a spot and tell us if you want to purchase the Beginner’s Package for $5.

Please submit this form to reserve your spot!
