Pastel Painting Workshop: Tuesday, December 3


Gregory Maichack, a national award-winning pastelist and talented instructor, returns to the Berkshire Athenaeum at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, December 3,. to present a workshop entitled: “Monet’s Mirror: How to Paint the Water Lilies”. In one session, workshop participants will create a painting in the style of the impressionist Claude Monet. The evening will include instruction, demo and hands on work by participants who will keep their artwork. All required materials will be provided. The artist requires all participants be at least 17 years old.

Because Maichack’s workshops are very popular, preregistration is required. Registration opens November 13 and can be made with the Reference Department at or by calling (413) 499 9480 x 202 during regular library hours.

Maichack’s appearance is sponsored by the Pittsfield Cultural Council, a subsidiary of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum, celebrating their 75th year of service to Pittsfield’s public library.
