Adult Art Class Registration Begins
The Garden City’s Department of Recreation and Parks will offer an adult art class this fall. This ten week program will teach the beginner as well as the advanced student the art of painting portraits and landscapes/still-life in pastel from photographs.
Classes will be held Fridays from 9 to 11:30 a.m. The cost of this program will be $135. This class is open to adult residents who reside in the Inc. Village of Garden City. Classes are held in St. Paul’s Cluett Hall beginning February 24.
The first lesson includes a portrait and landscape demonstration. At that time, a supply list is provided. Demonstrations will be available as needed throughout the program. Each student will receive the individual attention required as they move at their own pace and level of expertise.
Arleen Rueth Urban, the instructor for this program, is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America. A winner of numerous awards, her portraits hang in many Garden City homes, as well as throughout the United States. A portrait of Elvis Presley permanently hangs in Graceland, and Barbara Walters is among her celebrity commissioned subjects.
This year Arleen has added some basic drawing techniques to her pastel workshop. Those wishing to draw with pencil and/or charcoal only are invited to join this class.
