Studio photo Private/ Small Group Instruction

Marikay offers instruction in both graphite drawing and pastel painting in private and semi-private (2-3 students) settings in her 3rd floor studio at Union Street Gallery, Chicago Heights, IL. Geared to the individual, these lessons begin with a 2 hour assessment of the applicant's background and skill level, with subsequent lessons prescribed in answer to the needs and interests of the student. Dates, times, and frequency are all set between student and teacher.

Group Classes

Group classes in soft pastel are taught seasonally, in an ongoing series of 5 pastel classes per set. Classes meet every other week, with suggested artmaking to be done between class meetings. All classes meet in the second floor classroom at Union Street Gallery, 1527 Otto Boulevard, Chicago Heights, IL, on Saturdays 9am - 11:30am, or Tuesdays 2pm - 4:30pm.

Trial materials are available to all new students. Returning students are asked to provide their own supplies. Classes are open to all skill levels. Individual attention and group critiques inform every lesson.
