Art for Everyone: Abstract Painting

Location: UCB 312

This class is for those with basic painting background who would like to explore the techniques of abstract painting. Darcy Gray 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, play with perspective and focus, work with colors, then push themselves to paint intuitively and at different scales.

Initial supplies will be provided, including basic acrylics, pencils, brushes, palette knives, sketch paper and 1 canvas.

Dates: July 8 - August 12, 2017, Saturdays, 10:00am - 12:30pm
Instructor: Darcy Gray
Instructor Bio: Darcy Gray received her B.A. in 3 Dimensional Design from Birmingham City University in England. She recently moved to the Big Island from Santa Fe, NM, where she worked as an independent artist, taught private lessons and volunteered with teaching seniors. Darcy was recently honored by the Hawaii State Foundation in Culture and Arts with her abstract painting “Hilo Rain” which is now in the public Collection of Art in Public Places.

Special Restrictions: Tuition: $125
Required: Basic painting background.

Students will need to provide their own canvases and acrylics for the final classes, as they will be selecting sizes and colors of their preference.
