ArtSchool: Introduction to Pastel Painting

Filed under: ArtSchool — Tags: , , , — Lisa Pepin @ 11:04 pm

Today I dropped into Herb Slapo’s Introduction to Pastel Painting class and shot some of their artwork. They’re in the third week of their class and already making some beautiful pastel drawings! Check out photos below (more after the page break–click “more”).

Later on I’ll be posting more photos from a Hip-Hop Dance class and Plates and Platters pottery class. Stay tuned!
