Adult Art Classes at Cluett

Due to popular demand, the Recreation Department is again offering an adult pastel class taught by Arleen Ruth Urban. This class is open to adult residents of the Inc. Village of Garden City and runs from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Fridays. Classes are held in Cluett Hall at St. Paul’s. The cost of the 10-week program is $105 (supplies are bought on your own—a supply list will be handed out at the first class).

This 10-week program teaches the beginner, as well as advanced, student the art of painting portraits and landscapes/still life in pastels from photographs. Students are 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 are available as needed throughout the program. Each student receives the individual attention required to work at his/her 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.
