Free Mixed Media Class with Pat Dolan
On Saturday, February 29, 2020, Pat Dolan and some members had a delightful time painting with pastels combined with other media. The day was filled with experimentation, music, adventure and play. Also, Pat shared some of her wisdom and adages to help guide our work. Here are some.
A fantastic class today - combining technical mastery with a great classroom personality! and guessing everyone else enjoyed it as much as I did - and she went to great lengths to make everyone feel good about their work.
