Join Big Island artist Patti Pease Johnson, for the Experimental Watercolors workshop on Saturday, March 17, 2018 from 12:00pm – 3:30pm at Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village. Each student will create three to five separate 8×8 inch watercolor paintings on hot press paper using pre-broken glass as a catalyst to spark creativity.  Students will also be taught theories of good composition, along with color theory and color wheel use.  Abstract qualities are the focus in this workshop using three – four paints right out of the tube with the glass. After the first drying and glass removal, each piece is brought to further expressiveness by using detailed watercolor techniques of washes, spatters, lifting, value gradations, dry brush and more.

When asked to describe the experience Patti explained, “You can’t help but wonder what is going to happen after your first piece of glass is put on watercolor paper. In painting, the more chances you take, the more you will stretch the limits of your understanding, and in turn the more you will grow as an artist.”

Cost for the workshop is $50 and $45 for VAC Members plus a $10 supply fee per person. Beginner and intermediate artists are welcome. For more information or to register call VAC at 808-967-8222.
