Classes in acrylics and pastels are on the calendar for February and March at Gallery 246 in downtown Batesville.

Gallery artist and past president Karen Barker will teach a series on the essentials of pastels on four Saturdays: Feb. 11, Feb. 25, March 11, and March 25, 9 a.m. to noon each day. Each class will introduce basic principles and develop techniques and tools for subsequent classes, so that students create a finished piece in the fourth session. All materials are provided, but students are welcome to bring their own pastels if they prefer.
