Not sure if you are going to like oil pastels? Come in for a *special* short intro class with pastel professional Mary Jane Erard. Mary Jane usually works in soft pastel,  but is fully versed in how to work with oil pastels and is pleased to bring us this special session focusing in Oil Pastel.  Unlike our four-hour pastel workshops offered at The Depo, all materials will be provided for our two-hour intro classes. No experience is required and absolute beginners are welcome!
