In keeping with the 2019 Summer Reading Theme, A Universe of Stories, the library is hosting Paint the Starry Skies in pastel with award-winning artist Gregory John Maichack.
This pastel painting workshop is designed for adults, including beginners to advanced participants who want to paint expressively. Maichack will explain exciting Post Impressionist concepts and then start participants off by sharing a fearless approach to drawing. Participants will then find it effortless to work in tandem with the artist expressively drawing Starry Night with white charcoal pencils on black paper.
A demo of pastel handling techniques that allow a command of edges, scumbling, blending, slurring, and layering, and a demonstration of various strokes will fully illustrate van Gogh’s successful expressive methods.
Gregory John Maichack is a portraitist and painter working primarily in pastels. All materials are included. Space is limited. Registration is required.
