Renowned artist Samantha daSilva will host a Fearless Abstract Painting workshop on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Volcano Art Center’s Ni‘aulani Campus in Volcano Village.

The workshop covers a basic overview of acrylic paints and mediums, the emotional language of color and more. Students will learn daSilva’s unique method of painting which includes using rollers rather than brushes, tables instead of easels, lots of paint and water, canvas manipulation and plaster, and using sand and wood shavings to create ethereal textured abstracts.


Since 2008, Samantha’s work has been exhibited in over 100 group and solo shows across North America and she has taught at various public and private institutions.

Volcano Art Center offers students a safe and supportive environment to find and explore their own artistic style. The class fee is $90 or $85 for VAC members plus a $15 supply fee. A list of additional materials will be provided to students upon registration. No experience is necessary. To register, call Volcano Art Center at 808-967-8222 or visit them online.
