Workshop: Abstract Collaging


Join Darcy Gray for a day of Abstract Collaging on Saturday, June 22, 2019, from 10am – 2:30pm at Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village. No experience is necessary and all supplies will be provided.

Give collage a try in this one-day workshop where we will learn to “mix it up” with different types of papers, stencils, spray paint, stamps, inks and paint. The class will use 9” x 12” heavy watercolor paper which has been gessoed. Darcy will show you how to apply your own unique designs on to the collage paper.

In the morning session we will gather and create decorative papers, work on our basic layout, then in the afternoon bring all these elements together to create our own unique artworks. Embellish as you wish, add texture and color, bring in personal touches along the way, tell a story, or just dive in and have fun creating spontaneous expressive collages. Work at your own pace.

Basic acrylics paints, pencils, markers, brushes, stencils, papers, stamps, spray paint, and glue, will be provided in class, but students can bring their own supplies if they choose. Bringing an apron is suggested. Students will each get (5) 9” x12” gessoed heavy paper sheet to work on. Students may bring their own canvas, paper, or panels to work on if they wish, no larger than 9” x 12”. Bring a snack.

Class fee is $90/$85 VAC members plus a $20 supply fee. Advance registration is required and this workshop will be limited to 10 adults. To register call Volcano Art Center at 808-967-8222 or visit
