Watercolors with Ron Stocke
Feb 17 and 18, 2017
10:30am-4:30pm each day
WHERE: On Friday, students should plan to meet the instructor at The Classroom at Akamai Art Supply at 10:15am. On Sat. morning, students will meet with their supplies at the Courtyard King Kamehaha hotel in downtown Kona (weather permitting).
Students of all levels will be encouraged to push the limits to achieve exciting, contemporary watercolors in this two day workshop set in paradise.
Our objective will be to get the best results using simple yet effective painting techniques on location while achieving strong values, good color harmony, and strong composition.
Ron will also show how he has streamlined his painting equipment over the many years he's been painting on location.

Tips on traveling with your art supplies:
Typically, watercolor paint will travel nicely without issue. Using a waterproof palette can help, just squeeze out generous quantities of your paint into the palette and leave the tubes at home! Make sure your palette is protected in a large ziploc bag. OR buy all your paint at Akamai and we will help you get them home safely!
ACRYLIC and OIL PAINT:
Acrylics and Oils can be more difficult to travel with but not impossible. Just take your tubes and pop them into a large ziploc bag along with a printed copy of the MSDS information (get one for acrylics here, or get one for oils here) and write FINE ART SUPPLIES on the bag. OR buy all your paint at Akamai and we will help you get them home safely! Watch this video from Angela for her tips on traveling with oil or acrylics!
