Workshop: Abstract Painting – CANCELED


Join Darcy Gray for the Abstract Painting workshop on Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 10am – 2pm at Volcano Art Center Ni‘aulani Campus in Volcano Village. This class is for those with a basic painting background who would like to explore the techniques of abstract painting. 

Darcy shares her passion for abstract painting in this introductory class which will help students learn how to take risks and gain more confidence in their own way of painting. Students will develop sketches into final art pieces, play with perspective and focus, work with colors, then push themselves to paint intuitively and at different scales. Sketch paper will be provided in class for warm up exercises and roughing out paintings.

The class will paint on 18×24” heavy watercolor paper which has been gessoed. Darcy will lead students through fun drills throughout the class, and students will be able to take home all of their work. 

Basic acrylics paints, pencils, brushes, other tools will be provided in class, but students can bring their own if they choose.

 Class fee is $90/$85 VAC members plus a $20 supply fee for 5 sheets of 300lb watercolor paper, pre-gessoed. Advance registration is required and this workshop will be limited to 8 adults. 

This workshop has been canceled.
