Fun with Acrylics

Lanai Art Center is pleased to present renowned artist, Janet Bocast, who is visiting from Oregon to present a 2 day painting workshop.

“I started painting in the 70’s while living in Alaska. I use acrylic, watercolor and mixed media. I owned an art gallery in Oregon for 10 years. I’ve been teaching art workshops in Oregon for 15 years. I love it. I keep my classes fun and the students engaged during the process. My abstracts are known for being bold, colorful, abstract shapes and design. I engage in commission work for homes and offices, and special events. I am semi retired but still do commission work and teach.”

Beginners to Intermediates will learn to use shapes, texture and color to create beautiful paintings. This “no rules” fun and unconventional workshop will show you how to have fun, loosen up, and develop your own style. Explore color, composition, and abstraction with acrylic on watercolor paper.

This 2 day workshop will be held March 14 & 15, 10-4, at LHES Art Room T-104

Cost is $135 general public or $108 LAC members (20% discount). All materials included.

Due to the highly individualized attention given to each student, only 8 participants will be able to attend so don’t delay, sign up today. You can sign up at the Art Center or simply click here to reserve your spot. We don’t get opportunities like this very often on Lanai!
