Kim Weineck, artist and teacher, recently appeared on Foxboro Cable Acces TV demonstrating how to paint with pastels. The DVD, which is almost an hour and a half long, makes a great educational gift and is available for $20 at the Foxboro Cable station, 28 Central Strret, in downtown Foxboro.
But you can watch it for free on the internet if you go to video.fcatv.org and click on the Community tab. It is titled "Artistic Flair - Episode 4". It is definitely worthwhile.
