Hula Kahiko: Hālau Hula Malanai under the direction of Kumu Hula Liana Leiʻilima Kanaʻiaupuni Aveiro
Jun 8 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Volcano Art Center’s Hula Arts at Kīlauea 2024 performance series continues Saturday, June 8th with a presentation by Hālau Hula Malanai under the direction of Kumu Hula Liana Leiʻilima Kanaʻiaupuni Aveiro. The performance begins at 10:30am at the pā hula in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Although the event is free, Park entrance fees apply.

 Hālau Hula Malanai is an offshoot of Hālau Hula Ka Noʻeau. Kumu Liana studied under Master Kumu Hula Michael Pili Pang for more than 20 years, graduating as a Kumu Hula through traditional uniki ceremony, and passage. Hālau Hula Malanaiʻs hula geneology comes from na master Kumu Hula Auntie Maiki Aiu Lake and Auntie Mae Kamamalu Klein, dating back to the Royal Court Hula dancers. Kumu Liana continues to perpetuate the traditions and distinct “hula kuʻi styling in both the hula kahiko and hula auwana that has been passed down through generations from Auntie Maiki.

Kumu Liana supports and instills the importance of sharing hula at annual events including Huliheʻe Palace, the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, Maunalani’s Honu Release, Waimea Keiki Festival, May Day Celebrations, the Ukulele Festival, and many others.  She believes that sharing storytelling through hula is a responsibility as a kumu hula within the community.  Using the phrase “Hula is life” reflects her hula roots, genealogy, and goals for her halau.

 Hālau Hula Malanai is located at Konoho Kuahiwi in the uplands of Waimea with haumana ranging from age 4 to adult women.  Hālau Hula Malanaiʻs name was given by Kumu Hula Pili Pang and takes us to one of their core Hula auwana “Waika.”  Located in this area, Hālau Hula Malanai carries the name of the distinct Breeze that is clean, cool, and refreshing.  A breeze that promotes love on many different levels.

These free events are supported by donations from members of the Volcano Art Center. Donations are welcome to continue future programs. In case of extreme weather, there is a possibility that the performance will be moved indoors to the Kīlauea Visitors Center Auditorium where seating is limited.

Mary will provide encaustic paints, panels, and handmade paper to use as substrates, an assortment marking tools and brushes, and interesting papers, photographs, minerals, fibers, and other natural and found materials for students to incorporate into their paintings. Students are encouraged to bring other items they’d like to use.

You will exercise your innate design and creative sense to arrange the motifs on the fabric to make original designs and patterns that can liven up your own home or be given as a treasured hand-made gift.  You will be able to experiment with the instructor’s block printing collection and will also have the option to carve your own design.

Discover the rewarding aspects of printmaking and fabric design that results in something decorative and useful.  This class is a celebration of the experimental nature of stamping and printmaking and will encourage participants to explore the many possibilities of designing on fabric.  All supplies and one plain white tea towel per person will be provided. You may bring your own additional (solid color, cotton) fabric pieces to print on, if you wish.

Margo Vitarelli is a printmaker, Pacific art historian, exhibition designer, and art educator who has worked at Hawaii State Art Museum (renamed Capitol Modern), the East West Center, University of Hawaii OSHER Program, Manoa Heritage Center, and Mission Houses Museum.

Class fee is $70/($65 for VAC members) plus a $25 supply fee. No experience is necessary. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

Zentangle® Basic & Beyond w/ Dingbatz with Lydia Meneses
Jul 13 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Lydia Meneses, Certified Zentangle Teacher

Zentangle: Basic & Beyond w/Dingbatz will be held at VAC Niaulani Campus (19-4074 Old Volcano Road), on Saturday, July 13, 2024 at VAC Niaulani Campus, from 10am – 1pm.

Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. There are no mistakes in Zentangle Art.  

As you first glance at a Zentangle art piece it appears intricate and complicated. But, when you are guided through the process, you realize how simple it is  and how fun and engrossing it becomes.  

Beginners learn the basic Zentangle art method of drawing and those with experience get the guidance they need to take their Zentangle practice a step further. 

We will be going beyond the Zentangle basic by introducing the concept of Zentangle’s Dingbatz.  Zentangle’s Dingbatz  takes us on a “fancy-kine” journey using our art skills and adds a little magic to our art pieces.

Learning Objectives:

  • Introduction to the Zentangle Art Method
  • Five elements: dot, straight line, S shape, C shape, & orb ( . / s c o)
  • Zentangle basic vocabulary
  • Benefits of meditation through a mindful drawing practice. 

 Materials:

All art materials are provided in the Zentangle Basics kit. 

Student kit contains: Sakura PN pen, pencil and an assortment of paper tiles.

This class is open to all levels, no Zentangle or art experience necessary.  Students are encouraged to bring snacks/beverages to share.

Cost is $35/$30 VAC members plus a $15 supply and facility fee.

Abstract Watercolors with Broken Glass with Patti Pease Johnson
Aug 10 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm

student working 2 250dpi Abstract Watercolors with Broken Glass

Join Big Island artist, Patti Pease Johnson for the Abstract Watercolors workshop on Saturday, August 10th, from 9am – 12:30pm at Volcano Art Center. Cost for the workshop is $75 and $70 for VAC Members plus a $15 supply fee. Beginner and intermediate artists are welcome.

Imagine glass being shattered. The random shapes and patterns are totally unpredictable. Now take these haphazard glass pieces and marry them with watercolors; then add your own playful attitude. This is Experimental Watercolors! Like music on paper, colors flow in delicate waves.

Each student will create three to five separate 8×8 inch watercolor paintings on cold press watercolor 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.”

Patti Pease Johnson’s artwork can be found at galleries and shops across the State and in collections around the world.

The hālau’s performance this year will honor Auntie Dutchie Kapu Saffery who was the spiritual “mother” of the halau and to many in the community. She was a graduate of Maiki Aiu Lake of Hālau Hula o Maiki and an ‘olapa of Papa Lehua who passed in February of this year. The hālau will present traditional mele kahiko as taught to Kumu Crabbe by his kumu, Robert Uluwehi Cazimero of Halau Na Kamalei. Special guest soloist Cathy Liliaokalani Kasparovitch Arnold will also perform.
Halauolaokalani is a branch of the hula family of Auntie Maiki Aiu Lake who was the teacher of Kumu Crabbe’s teacher, Robert Uluwehi Cazimero.
The hula performance is presented authentically in an outdoor setting, rain or shine without electronic amplification. Audience members are encouraged bring sun/rain gear and sitting mats, and to arrive early as parking at the Visitor’s Center is limited, additional parking is available at the Steam Vents parking lot.
Although these events are free, park entrance fees apply.

Pen Sketching & Watercolor Washes with Patti Pease Johnson
Sep 7 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm

Pen Sketching & Watercolor Washes with Patti Pease Johnson

Saturday, September 7, 2024,  from 9 am – 12:30 pm at VAC Niaulani Campus in Volcano, Village.

Learn mixed media line and wash technique on 6 x 9” watercolor paper and create 2 paintings in the 3 ½ hour session. “It’s a great size for journal travel recording for lively illustrative looks,” says instructor Patti Pease Johnson. This workshop is a chance for beginners and intermediate students to experiment with simplified line exaggerations and painting outside the lines. All materials are supplied so it gives a person a chance to see if this is their creativity spark before investing in the materials.

“Simple line drawing for the outside of objects is what it’s about,” says Patti. “Make it a suggestion of the object. Draw and paint loosely. For example, no need to complete the leaf outside edge, have a closed petal on a flower, or a tree with full branches. White space is good, chant it when you begin painting,”

Your intuition and playful attitude are part of this journey. First is a discussion by looking at many samples and asking the question: is it about drawing vs. color? Students then practice the minimal drawing first on newsprint from looking at a simple still-life setup. Then it is redrawn on the watercolor paper, and outlined suggestively with the permanent black fine-tip pen. Students learn a pen hashing technique for the darkest darks and cast shadows; plus learn watercolor techniques of washes, blending, glazing, dry brush, and lift-off. A 4-page handout with a basic 10-step procedure lets you remember the steps.

Patti Pease Johnson has been a working artist for 27 years and a teacher of various mediums including two other watercolor techniques, soft pastel still life, and Plein air landscapes. Her workshops for painting on silk using liquid dye and wax resist. She has had artwork in numerous juried shows and has collectors in many parts of the world through gallery sales around the state of Hawaii.

The cost is  $75/$70 for VAC members, plus $10 supply fee, and a $5 registration fee. For more information call (808) 967-8222.

Sounds at the Summit: Dirty Cello in Concert
Sep 20 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm


Dirty Cello in Concert at Volcano Art Center 

Friday, September 20, at 5:30 pm at Volcano Art Center Ni‘aulani Campus in Volcano Village

Tickets: $30/$25(VAC Members)

From Iceland to Italy, and all over the U.S., San Francisco based band  Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you’ve never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin’ bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping!

Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical.” Lou Fancher, Oakland Magazine.

“The band plays every style imaginable, and does some fantastic covers. (Their rendition of “Purple Haze” is incredible.) But what is most spectacular about them is hearing the depth of soul in Roudman’s playing—it goes beyond what most people would expect from the instrument. She plays it with so much heart, you’ll wonder why more bands don’t have a cellist.” Good Times Santa Cruz

“The group seamlessly careens from blues to bluegrass and rock in a way that really shouldn’t make sense but somehow does.” LA Times
