Workshop : Pastel On-Site Landscape



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, March 23, 2019 from 9am – 12:30pm at Volcano Art Center Ni‘aulani 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 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.

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. 

Cost for the workshop is $50 and $45 for VAC Members plus a $15 supply fee per person. Beginner and intermediate artists are welcome.
