The class will be looking for a new way of seeing and interpreting a subject. Ian will guide students in the use of color, which will be the main focus of the workshop. Students will learn watercolor techniques, practice drawing/sketching, and take home finished pieces!

About the Teaching Artist

Since arriving on Maui in 1981, Carmen Gardner’s artistic journey has led her through ten years as a popular radio personality where she explored her love of music . . . and the next decade as an actor/director, including a summer at England’s Royal National Theatre where she studied with Sir Ian McKellan and other “British Masters.” And now, she has come full circle … back to her first love: painting. She has always admired watercolor artists and their tenacity. Her art has been influenced by painters like John Singer Sargent; Winslow Homer; Mary Whyte; Henry Caselli; Stephen Scott Young; and Georgia O’Keeffe, to name a few. Carmen has always treasured the creative “process,” the “getting there,” more than the arrival at a final product or performance. To that end, she is now honored to be sharing the adventure with the many “Maui Masters” who make the Valley Isle their home. She hopes her art reflects the “spirit” of the islands. As a 32 year resident of Haiku, on Maui’s north shore, Carmen’s art is an “almost kama’aina’s” reflection on the “island way of life.” She invites you to share in the experience.

Spontaneous Painting & Art Therapy #1186

Join us for a creative and therapeutic art session that aims to wake up creativity and help you get out of your own way as you experience authentic creative expression. Absolutely no artistic experience is required, although spontaneous painting is a great way to help generate a feeling of freedom in those students with more artistic background. Participants will be given encouragement and guidelines to promote easy painting from the heart, not the head. Students will stand up and paint, choosing whatever colors speak to them and paint freely in a supportive environment where there are no rights or wrongs. Expressing yourself is a natural part of the creative process. By suspending judgments and allowing yourself to play, you will be turning off the intellect and allowing your heart to open up and guide you. These sessions are all about the process (not a technique class). Students paint for the first part of class and then will have time in the second part for deeper discussion and a look into what you have created as a window into personal discovery.
