Create a stunning painting of a flowering cactus (similar to the one pictured) while learning the basics of drawing with pastels. This class will teach blending techniques, composition, and the importance of value and color. Professional artist Christa MacFarlane will guide students through the process from start to finish and demonstrate how appealing the medium can be due to its versality.

No experience is required to learn this chalk-like medium. All supplies provided. Teens are welcome.

Christa has a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from the University of Kansas and has over 25 years of experience as an interior designer, graphic artist, and art instructor. “Producing my own artwork with meaning is empowering and connects me to our natural world. Inspiring others through the creative process brings me joy! I hope you can join me in discovering your creative spirit that is a unique and beautiful part of you!” says Christa.

Pre-registration is required. Participants must wear masks during the class. Please read our COVID protocols on our classes page.

*Classes may be cancelled, rescheduled or moved to an online format in accordance with public health orders and/or inclement weather.
