We had a full house at Tuesday night’s Pastel Workshop with award-winning pastel painter Gregory Maichack. Participants learned impressionist techniques and got some hands-on practice in using pastels.
At right are some participants blending colors to emulate a Monet painting or create their own art.
At left, Circulation Associate Donald uses a green pastel to add to his version of Monet’s painting Regatta at Argenteuil.
The program was sponsored by the Friends of the Hanson Library and by a grant from the Hanson Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Thanks to these organizations for their support.
