CROSSVILLE — Well-known artist Bev Olin will teach the Smorgasbord class for March at the Plateau Creative Arts Center (PCAC) March 4 from 10 a.m. to noon.

“The medium of pastels is wonderfully direct and expressive,” stated Olin. “Colors are true and glowing, and this is a great way to begin exploring your artistic expression.” 

There are many ways of working with pastels, and the rules are flexible. This Smorgasbord class offers an opportunity to learn more. Supplies will be provided, but a participant may bring their own supplies also.

Smorgasbord classes are monthly two-hour art classes geared to participants at all skill levels. Offered by the Art Guild at Fairfield Glade, the cost of each class is a very reasonable $15 per person for both Art Guild members and non-members. This price covers the cost of most materials.

Sign up for this and other Smorgasbord Classes at the Plateau Creative Arts Center, 451 Lakeview Dr. (off Peavine). For more information or to enroll and pay by credit card, call 707-7249. The registration fee must be paid at the time of registration to hold an opening in the class. Class size is limited, so register early. 

The Art Guild at Fairfield Glade is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization and an equal opportunity provider. The Plateau Art Center is handicapped accessible. Visit their website at
