Pastel Art Workshops, Tuesday Feb 11

Pastel Art Workshops
Free Art Workshop!  Take home your own painting!
Tuesday, Feb 11th  Upton Center, 2 Farm Street
 3:30-5:30pm  or   6:30-8:30pm 
Artist Greg Maichack returns to Upton on Tuesday, February 11, to teach two free workshops on pastel painting.

From 3:30 - 5:30pm, we'll paint "Starry Night" inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, and from
6:30 - 8:30, "Miracle Flowers" inspired by Georgia O'Keeffe.  Please choose only one workshop to attend.

Each workshop is a two-hour event 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, calling 508-529-6272, or on our website,

  Teens ages 13-18 are encouraged to attend “Starry Night”, all ages are welcome at either workshop.

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.
