Greg Maichack: The Art of Pastel Workshop
Monday April 24, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:30 PM
The Pastel Art of Georgia O’Keeffe: Modern American Abstraction
Become inspired to create beautiful pastel paintings by exploring America’s foremost modernist pastel painter of flowers. Focusing on the calla lily, participants will work in tandem with artist, Gregory Maichack, to experiment with hundreds of pastels and to learn pastel handling techniques O’Keeffe used in her art -- scumbling, feathering, blending, slurring, edges, and layering. How layering is accomplished without fixatives for achieving O’Keeffe’s “clean” look will be a focus, as well as building an abstract foundation through Leonardo da Vinci’s revolutionary drawing technique.
All materials provided. Space is limited to 16 participants. Registration required.
