Scarlet Poppies: Pastel Paint like Georgia O’Keeffe

Maichack's poppy

Maichack’s single poppy

Georgia O’Keeffe’s famous poppy paintings (single and double) will be the focus of Scarlet Poppies: Pastel Paint Like Georgia O’Keeffe on Thursday, May 7 at 6:00 PM at the Lower Level of Dighton Town Hall. Maichack will provide an easy entry into the world of pastel painting. All necessary strokes needed to pastel paint any image will be demonstrated.

Participants will receive an engaging hands-on experience of basic pastel painting, as well as advanced techniques. All will use professional grade materials to understand how to easily start and complete a pastel painting. Maichack will bring 100s of pigment-rich pastels and individually demonstrate and guide attendees through the essentials of painting with pastels.
“I will display my original pastel artwork of both O’Keeffe’s single and double poppy paintings to illustrate and unveil the process. Ongoing questions will be encouraged. All will take home their painting.”

This program is free, but registration is required as space is limited.

This program is partially funded by the Dighton Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. mass cultural council logo
