Stunning Still Lifes :
Pastel Paint like the Masters
Thursday, Feb 18th
Free Art Workshop! Take home your own painting!
Artist Greg Maichack returns to Upton on Thursday, February 18th, 6pm-8pm, to teach a
free workshop on pastel painting.
The workshop is a two-hour event (plus one hour set-up and take-down) that enables
sheer beginners to advanced adults to hear how artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, van
Gogh, and Monet painted. The workshops offer participants interesting and entertaining
historical information about the artists’ lives and painting techniques, a demo at easel,
and participants’ own hands-on experience with pastels (all professional-grade materials
supplied). All take home their own pastel painting still life.
This program is free and open to members of the Upton community. Space is limited, so
pre-registration is required. Register by visiting the Upton Town Library, or calling 508-
529-6272. Suitable for ages 16 and up.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Upton Cultural Council, a local
agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
