Sail Away!: Learn the Art of Pastels with Gregory Maichack
Thursday, June 13th 6-8PM

Learn the art of pastels with artist Gregory Maichack in this adult art workshop. Call 781-324-0218 to sign up. Space is limited.

Imagine using sailboat references and Maichack’s pastel version of Monet’s Impressionist painting,“Sailboat at Le Petit-Gennevilliers,” to create your own pastel painting. In this new, highly researched two-hour workshop, you will freely experiment with hundreds of the artist’s professional grade pastels, pastel
pencils, and pastel paper, creating a painting in your own style, realistic or Impressionistic, in this fun pastel painting workshop.

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 1,030 libraries and local cultural councils. He guides participants through the process with everything they need to know to pastel paint any subject. Expressive and fun, you will quickly learn how easy and direct pastel painting is and as always, all will keep their pastel painting.
