What former students are saying:

“To study with pastel Master, Abel Marquez, is an opportunity not to be missed. He is a sensitive, thoughtful teacher; full of fun stories to put you at ease as you begin your experience with soft pastels. Abel’s class is all about finding ways to help you see, so that you can draw, respond to values and contrasts, all while you are learning technique. Make no mistake about it, his classes are challenging. And, yes, you will eventually, find your own style. I have learned so much!”
