Volcano Art Center is offering Forest Bird Painting Workshops with Patrick Ching on January 17th and 18th (Two different workshops!).
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.
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.”
