Abstract Expressionism Workshop
The Abstract Painting workshop was so much fun! Just view the photos from our class we just had this November to see how everyone explored their own abstract vocabulary. By painting bigger and with larger brushes people broadened their ideas and views of painting.

I am so thrilled to have relocated and to have started teaching art workshops again here on the Big Island of Hawaii. I welcomed new students and returning students to my watercolor class.
We completed a workshop in August and in October, 2017.

More workshops will be scheduled. Check back soon to see my calendar.
Please view my blog to see photos from this first incredibly fun and creative group of students and their artwork.

Watercolor & Collage Workshop
November 2016
My students expanded their experience with watercolor after demonstrating some basic techniques with the watercolor medium. They then recycled their artwork by creating collages with their paintings. This became a process in balancing control with releasing control, and then allowing for an entirely unpredictable outcome. As usual, I learned from my students as they revealed their unique creative skills and vision that they offered to the class.

Abstract Painting Workshop

My student Kieran had fun expressing himself using repetitive shapes and rhythm during the abstract painting exercises last week.

Watercolor painting and collage workshop along the Kalapana coast, aka Red Road of the Big Island of Hawaii. Students are inspired by exotic tropical beauty to paint both their inner and outer landscape.
