Pastel Paint a Jellyfish with Greg Maichack

Join Gregory Maichack, award-winning artist and two times Mass. Cultural Council Gold Star Award Program nominee, for a hands-on zoom session. Materials will be provided for this fun, two-hour “Take and Make” workshop. Greg will guide everyone in producing their very own original pastel of a stunning jellyfish as he teaches us how to create the special effect of translucency. The possibilities are bottomless and everyone will get to keep their 12 x 18” painting!


This program is supported in part by a grant from the Newton local cultural council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
