Artist Nancy DeLucrezia will offer a workshop called the “Wonderful World of Wine & Watercolor” on Tuesday, Sept. 19 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Volcano Art Center’s Ni‘aulani Campus in Volcano Village.

Participants will learn how to transfer a photo onto watercolor paper and the basic techniques needed to create a painting including basic palette setup, color theory and mixing, masking, wet in wet, texturizing, depth, highlights and shadows. During the class, a sampling of several wines from Grapes in Hilo will be offered.
