You will begin by going to the restaurant, Baked On Maui, at the front of the cannery. Have a delicious breakfast and a local cup of Maui coffee while you take in the Haiku vibes. I will come and down and and collect everyone right at 9am and bring everyone on a brief walking tour of the historic Pauwela Cannery, which once canned pineapples but is now a surf board shaping mecca. Once we are up in the studio we can look around at some locally-made art to get inspired, then we arrive to our fully-ready art station to begin our hands-on art class. I will give everyone an overview of the process with lots of example images. You will be guided step-by-step but can have freedom to explore in the media. We will be focusing on "waves" as the theme for this class and we will all have the same blues focused color palette for the sky and ocean. We can begin with our canvas boards on easels and using brushes and palettes of paint, we can create our template for our ocean scene. You can stick with a strictly painterly approach to the piece or you can be bold and experiment and you can add some acrylic pour methods to achieve a realistic, crashing wave. I will be there for each student, every step of the way should you have questions or needs. You will leave with your original masterpiece to cherish and forever remind you of your epic trip to Maui's wave-filled Northshore.
I have been an art teacher for 20+ years. It is my true passion in life to share my love of art to students of all ages and skill levels. I received a BA in Art from Northern illinois University with a focus in Art Education and Studio Art. I taught in the Chicagoland area. Here on Maui, I teach at the Hui No'eau, Haleakala Waldorf High School, La'akea, Haiku Elementary School and privately at resorts and homes, through my own company, Maui Art Services. And as a Professional Artist living on Maui(and art studio tenant of the Pauwela Cannery) for 10+ years, I would love to share my knowledge with YOU! And what is a better souvineer of a trip to Maui than your own incredible work of art? Plus, my new art studio/teaching space in the Treehouse Gallery and Collective Studio Spaces is filled with inspiring, beautiful works of art.
You will be given a 9"x12" canvas board you will keep as your final masterpiece. I will have everything else you need to…
Baked on Maui is the heart(and stomach;) of the Pauwela Cannery. It not only has incredible home-baked goods, hearty breakfasts and phenomenal coffee drinks but it serves a perfect, easy-to-find meeting place for our experience. Treehouse Gallery and Art Studios Collective is a thriving local gem that houses monthly Art Shows and various events in it's large gallery space, while being home to many talented local artist's studios.
最多可有10位年满12周岁的参与者参加。 Participants must be able to walk up 2 flights of stairs. Unfortunately, we do not offer wheel chair accessibility up to the second floor.
clothes that can get paint on them(very unlikely but don't wear best clothes just in case;)
You do not need to have any painting experience. Just an open mind and a great attitude. And don't wear expensive clothes. I provide aprons but you never know, you might get a little paint on your self.
