Pastel Flare 

 This workshop is for adults who want to express themselves artistically but who feel unsure of their natural abilities.  We use OIL PASTELS & PAPER  to identify and overcome inhibitions that limit us in a playful, relaxed setting.  All materials are provided.  All you need is an apron or old clothes.  This is a one day,  fun-filled,  and hands-on opportunity to explore your feelings through color, and to see how that experience can enrich other aspects of your life.
