Pastel Paint The Miracle Flowers with Greg Maichack

September 20 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Monday afternoon, September 20th from 2 pm – 4 pm, the library will host pastel artist Gregory John Maichack to present an adult hands-on workshop

In this two-hour workshop, participants have fun producing their own pastel painting inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s enormous mural, The Miracle Flowers, which Elizabeth Arden, the cosmetics mogul, commissioned her to paint in 1936.

We will extract from The Miracle Flower two flowers from the original 6 X 7 foot flower painting, and pastel paint our own wonderful creation on paper in yellows and purple, with greens and blues for background. Maichack will demonstrate again how beginners to accomplished artists can pastel paint easily using techniques of masters such as O’Keeffe. As always, all will keep their 12 X 18 pastel paintings.

This pastel painting workshop is designed for sheer beginners to experienced artists. Seats may fill quickly so please call (508) 764-5426 to register. Participants will freely experiment with professional grade pastels, pastel pencils, and pastel paper, in this fun pastel painting workshop
