Garden City Recreation Department News

Adult Art Classes at Cluett
Due to popular demand, the Recreation Department will again offer an adult pastel class taught by Arleen Ruth Urban. This class is open to adult residents of the Inc. Village of Garden City. The class will run from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Fridays beginning Sept. 18. Our classes will be held in Cluett Hall at St. Paul’s. The cost of the 10-week program will be $105 (supplies are bought on your own—a supply list will be handed out at the first class).
This 10-week program will teach the beginner, as well as advanced, student the art of painting portraits and landscapes/still-life in pastels from photographs. Students will be given the option of dividing each three-hour session between portrait or landscape or they may concentrate solely on the subject of their choice.
Demonstrations will be available as needed throughout the program. Each student will receive the individual attention required to work at their own pace and level of expertise.
Arleen Ruth Urban, the instructor for this program, is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America. A winner of numerous awards, her commissioned portraits hang in many Garden City homes.
To register for this program, please visit the Recreation Office in Village Hall.
