Library to host 'Art of Pastel Painting' workshop

Award-winning artist Gregory John Maichack returns to present "An Introduction to the Art of Pastel Painting" from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24, at the Leominster Public Library, 30 West St.

Participants will receive a hands-on experience of basic pastel painting, as well as advanced techniques. All will try their hand at starting a pastel painting.

Maichack will demonstrate the essentials of painting with pastels, and he will display his original pastel artwork to illustrate his talk. A demonstration of expressive pastel painting will detail achieving luminous color, volume, structuring an engaging composition, and tips on creating impact. This workshop is free and open to anyone age 16 or over. All supplies will be provided, but participants should bring a photo.

Space is limited. Please register either by calling the library's Information Desk at (978) 534- 7522 or online through the Calendar of Events at the library's website at www.leominsterlibrary.org.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Leominster Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency and in part by the Friends of the Leominster Public Library.
