Event Description

Explore the medium of oil pastels with artist Kimberly Machovec-Smith. Kimberly was first drawn to oil pastels because of their creamy texture, vibrant colors, and their user-friendly qualities.  Oil pastels do not require solvents or mediums, there are no brushes to clean and no leaky tubes of paint.  Learn which tools are helpful to have, how to effectively blend and layer colors, and how to help them set up when the image is complete.  Materials will be provided.  For ages 12 and up.  A $15 materials fee is required, payable to the artist.  Due to limited space, preregistration is required by Feb. 24th.  To preregister contact CRMA Education Director Erin Thomas at 319-366-7503 or
