Virtual Adult Art Workshop: Pastels with Gregory Maichack
Tuesday, December 15, 2020 at 5:30 PM
In this new, highly researched two-hour workshop, participants have fun producing their own pastel painting inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s enormous mural, The Miracle Flower, which Elizabeth Arden, the cosmetics mogul, commissioned her to paint in 1936. Gregory Maichack is a seasoned pro at teaching pastel techniques, as recognized by the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) Boston; Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), and hundreds of libraries and local cultural councils.
Participants extract from The Miracle Flower two flowers from the original 6 X 7 foot flower painting, and pastel paint their own wonderful creation on paper in reds and pinks, 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 use Maichack’s materials, pastels, and paper, and will keep their 12 X 18 pastel paintings.
