It’s time to release those concerns you might have about your painting skills and gain poise in each of your brush strokes. Let go of those nagging anxieties when using new colors and gain new confidence in your composition.
Understanding your medium and using your tools effectively gives the results you want. If you are an intermediate or beginner, this 2-day class will give you a better command of your medium.
Join instructor Vicki Penney-Rohner on July 7 & 8 (Saturday & Sunday) from 10am – 4pm at Volcano Art Center’s Ni‘aulani Campus in Volcano Village. Cost for the two-day workshop is $100 or $90 for VAC Members. Students will need a 24×30 canvas, paints and brushes. Students who have taken previous classes are invited to bring unfinished work from a previous workshop. See the supply list below.
Students will learn to mix colors, use different mediums to achieve various effects, and learn to layer color to bring depth and luminous richness to their work. Throughout the two days, students will learn to create form using values and light, and recognize, understand and apply the elements of design and composition to improve their work. Students will also be working with a pallet knife as well as brushes, and this lesson will explore painting water.
Vicki has been teaching art for fifteen years, and her work is in the State of Hawaii’s permanent collection, has been featured in magazines and won numerous awards throughout the US. She is the Artist in Residence at the Fairmont Orchid and teaches classes there weekly.
