Learn Pastels in the Style of Georgia O'Keeffe with Gregory Maichack
The Malden Public Library will host award-winning pastel artist Gregory John Maichack’s workshop, “The Art of Georgia O’Keeffe: How to Pastel Paint Flowers,” on Thursday, March 17th, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. This pastel painting workshop serves sheer adult beginners to advanced artists and is free and open to the public. Seats may fill quickly, so please call (781) 324-0218 to pre-register.
In this fun pastel painting workshop for adults, Mr. Maichack will provide insights into O’Keeffe’s life and painting methods, demonstrate how to use pastels, (as participants follow along), and coach participants as they attempt their own pastel paintings in O’Keeffe’s style, with the focus on flowers. Mr. Maichack provides all materials, including professional grade papers and hundreds of pastels.
Maichack, nominated twice for a Massachusetts Gold Star Program Award, will also display his original pastel artwork to illustrate his talk. Artist Gregory John Maichack lives in western Holyoke. He is a portraitist and painter working primarily in pastels. Visit his new website at www.GregoryMaichack.com.
