Tools to bring: cutting mat or dense cardboard, Xacto knife with new #11 blade or similar tool, metal-edged ruler, bone folder or non-serrated butter knife, pencil, eraser, glue stick, scissors, discarded catalog or magazine for gluing surface.

Optional: scoring board (very helpful), portable paper trimmer, quilter’s rule, rotary cutter, paper punches, rubber stamps. Any art supplies such as colored pencils, crayons, markers, watercolor, photographs for collaging, scraps of decorative paper, etc.

About:

Charlene Asato avidly pursues book arts, paper arts, photography, calligraphy and doll arts.  Her books have been in many juried shows, locally, nationally and internationally and some have won awards. She finds it very exciting that a simple fold changes a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional form and artist’s books provide a wonderful avenue to convey this energy.  She enjoys imparting this excitement to others through workshops.

Return of ‘Alalā: Restoring The Voice Of Hawaii’s Native Forests

Local artists supporting the ‘Alalā through Volcano Art Center

Volcano Art Center is proud to present Return of ‘Alalā: Restoring The Voice Of Hawai`i’s Native Forests, a statewide multimedia art competition featuring Hawai`i’s endemic ‘Alalā.  The exhibit will be on display at Volcano Art Center Gallery in Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park from September 3rd to October 9th, 2016.  Proceeds from the exhibition support the reintroduction of this important species to Hawai`i’s native forests this fall.  The exhibit is open to the public and free of charge although park entrance fees apply.

“The response to this collaborative conservation effort has been terrific,” states Gallery Manager Emily C. Weiss.  “Hawai’i’s creative community has learned so much about this critically endangered species through outreach from the ‘Alalā Project and the Hawai`i Endangered Bird Conservation Program. To date, VAC has received 47 entries. The artwork submitted reflects the artist’s knowledge of and affinity for this special species.

For the first time ever, Volcano Art Center is hosting a preview exhibit.  Selected artworks from the Return Of ‘Alalā competition will be on display at the Volcano Art Center Gallery beginning at 9am on Saturday, August 27th in conjunction with the Cultural/Festival and BioBlitz hosted by Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. These select works will be available for presale purchase through a silent auction in an effort to raise funds to support the Hawai’i Endangered Bird Program and their long term project.  Bidding will commence at 9:00am on Saturday, August 27th and conclude at 6:45pm on Sunday, August 28th.

VAC welcomes anyone interested in supporting the event further to join in a special Hawaiian blessing by Kumu Kaho’okele Crabbe which will take place in front of Volcano Art Center Gallery on Sunday, August 28 beginning at 3:30pm.  Immediately following the blessing a reception will be held at The Volcano House Hotel directly across the street from VAC Gallery.  Live music by Keoki Kahumoku along with drinks and pupus will be available for ticket holders. Those interested in tickets can purchase them in person at VAC or online  here for $50 or $45 for VAC members.  Proceeds from ticket sales go directly to support the ongoing ‘Alalā release project.  The evening events will end at VAC Gallery with desserts and the final bids for the artwork closing at 6:45pm.

“Please join Volcano Art Center in supporting this unique conservation effort. The ‘Alalā has been extinct in the wild since 2002, with your support we hope that will change,” states Weiss.   The public is reminded that entrance fees to Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park will be waived from August 25 – 28, in celebration of the National Park Service Birthday.

Thursday Nights at the Center: Patrick Ching’s “Inspirations of a Hawai’i Wildlife Artist”
Sep 8 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Thursday Nights at the Center: Patrick Ching’s “Inspirations of a Hawai’i Wildlife Artist”

Volcano Art Center is proud to present Patrick Ching’s “Inspirations of a Hawai’i Wildlife Artist” on Thursday, September 8 from 7pm – 9pm in the Niaulani Campus Great Room. Mr. Ching is a renowned Hawaiian conservationist and wildlife artist, author, and ornithological illustrator who has garnered international recognition for his realistic renderings of nature; Hawai’i’s native birds, insects, plants and ferns come alive through his vibrant art.

Mr. Ching’s passion took root long ago while exploring the valleys, shorelines, and remote atolls of Hawai’i. It was during a month-long Outward Bound wilderness program that Patrick saw his first Hawaiian hawk in the sky over Pololu valley.

As he reminisced, “During that experience I decided to devote my life to educating people about Hawai’i’s native wildlife through my art. I paint the places and things that I love with the colors that have surrounded my life. My objective is to take the beauty that I have experienced and bring it into people’s homes and their lives so that they may appreciate the things that are naturally Hawaiian.”

Join us on September 8, from 7pm – 9pm for Patrick Ching’s “Inspirations of a Hawai’i Wildlife Artist”. Get to know the life and stories behind his intricate paintings. Enjoy field sketches of Wallabies, sharks and monk seals, as well as tales of some of Hawai’i’s environmental heroes from days gone by.

This evening is part of Thursday Nights at the Center, an evening series at the Volcano Art Center, focusing on art, Hawaiian culture and our environment. The series is intended to inspire, enhance our art and life experience and foster community connections. The event is FREE, but a $5 donation is greatly appreciated.

Students will also be working with a pallet knife as well as brushes, learning to create rocks and lava effectively.

Cost is $35 or $30 for VAC members plus a $10 supply fee.

Fabric artists, Hawaiian quilt makers and others will see how this technique can be applied to their work.

Supply List

We will set, start and finish our paintings during this fun and informative three hour session.

Start with a 16″ x 20″ canvas or so. We will paint a colorful underpainting, then Peggy will show you how to create the perfect pallet to work with.

Ten point list of what to bring including a list of colors: 

1.)  Bring your Acrylic Paints. (If you are buying new paints try the Soft Acrylics. Soft Acrylics have as much pigment as heavy body acrylics, they mix easily and they can be thicken up with Clear medium when needed) While Painting with Peggy you will learn about colors; their properties and their complimentary counter parts. Below is a list of colors that you can use. Please get professional grade paints.

Primary (best to have) Colors:

  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Alizarine Crimson (Red)
  • Cadmium Yellow light
  • Titanium White

Secondary (good to have) Colors: 

  • Viridian or Thalo Green
  • Dioxazine Purple
  • Burnt Umber

Choose more colors as you go. Here are some colors with descriptions:

  • Phthalo Blue – transparent blue-green
  • Magenta – transparent, between D.Purple and Ult. Blue
  • Acra Gold – transparent “dark” yellow
  • Naphthol Red Light – transparent light red
  • Quinacridone Crimson – transparent red, rosy glazing
  • Cadmium Orange – secondary, compliment to Ultramarine Blue
  • Hooker’s Green Deep Hue – Dark green-yellow
  • Quinacridone Burnt Orange – Transparent red-orange
  • Cadmium Yellow Medium
  • Green Gold – transparent
  • Mixing White – good to have for mixing medium values and other stuff
  • Unbleached White – good for warm whites and warm nudging of colors

 

2.)  Acrylic Matt Medium (clear, runny)

3.)  Canvas of your choice (stretched canvas or canvas pad – any size, I like 16 x 20 or larger)

4.)  Large Jar for water (plastic or glass, the larger the better)

5.)  Pallet of your choice (styrafoam plates or egg cartons work well)

6.)  Paper Towels

7.)  Easel

8.)  Chair we have, but bring one that you like if you want to.

9.)  Please think about a place or a subject that is meaningful to you, and bring a picture of it to refer to as you create your painting with Peggy.

10.)  Drinks and snacks

Arrive a little early to get set up, because right away everyone will coat their canvas with an underpainting. While it dries, Peggy will guide us in setting up the perfect pallet of colors and give instructions on how to develop your painting with great color harmony and value.

Personal instruction is available during this three hour class and painting session. Any painting that you are having trouble with, feel free to bring to the class. Peggy will help you to recognize its strengths and provide tips on how to put on the final touches.

Together as a group we will learn how to create your next best masterpiece, inspire each other to try new things with a better understanding of color and composition and encourage those who want to exhibit their art in shows and on the web.

Kau_Desert_Wind_BestDance Imagined with Karen Masaki

Four Tuesdays at VAC

Class dates:  Tuesdays – 9/13, 9/20, 9/27, 10/4

Time:  10-11:30 a.m.

Cost:  $20/$15 single admission; $40 for the entire series for both VAC members and non-members

Volcano Art Center’s Dance Imagined classes will explore basic dance technique combined with the pure exhilaration of movement.  Smooth, spikey, graceful, flailing, focused, indirect – whatever can be imagined within provides the source for movement without.

Classes will start with a general warm up, moving through all body parts to get the blood flowing and joints loosened.  Focus will then shift to the basics of modern dance technique with emphasis on alignment, strengthening the legs and feet, working from the core, and increasing expressive potential through the torso and arms.

karenmasakiheadshotA free dance segment follows, accompanied by music ranging from classical to rock to jazz to alternative.  Classes will end with a movement and breathing exercise drawn from Juliu Horvath’s GYROKINESIS® methodology.

This class is appropriate for all who love to move.  No dance experience is necessary and the technique portion will be a basic introduction.
