In these classes you bring what you are working on, along with your own materials, and your questions.  It’s amazing how much you can learn by working with others and a teacher handy to ask for help.  Everyone works at their won level, at their own speed, and on their own subject matter.  You can drop in for any portion of the 3 hours that works into your schedule.  The rate is $10.00 an hour, paid at the time of session taken.  I’m looking forward to sharing my passion for pastel with all of you!
