Enjoy the outdoors and take your painting beyond the four walls of a classroom in the Pastel On-Site Landscape Painting workshop with Patti Pease Johnson on Saturday, September 4, 2021, from 9 am – 1:30 pm at Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village.
You’ll receive step-by-step instruction in a proven rotational method for success, starting with form and fill, moving to the value of black and white, then color. Your own natural style is brought to the surface. All materials will be supplied along with guidance and inspiration for your creative journey.
Initial discussion includes pastel types, papers, fixing, and mounting. Then, use newsprint to get the flow of arm movements to keep loose. Next, you’ll form shapes, and move into colors on sanded pastel paper. Learn to exaggerate and be bold with colors, and the value of using the lightest lights and the darkest darks. Grow your knowledge of composition, color, and correcting problems.
Students will complete one 9×12” project. Weather permitting, the workshop will take place outdoors at Ni‘aulani. Otherwise, the workshop will be held indoors with a reference photo.
The cost for the workshop is $50 and $45 for VAC Members plus a $15 fee per person, inclusive of supplies. Beginner and intermediate artists are welcome.
Patti Pease Johnson’s artwork can be found at galleries and shops across the State and in collections around the world.
