Join Darcy Gray for a day of abstract collaging on Saturday, June 22, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village.

No experience is necessary and all supplies will be provided.

Give collage a try in this one-day workshop where attendees will learn to “mix it up” with different types of papers, stencils, spray paint, stamps, inks and paint.

The class will use 9-by-12-inch heavy watercolor paper which has been gessoed.

Gray will show students how to apply their own unique designs on to the collage paper.

In the morning session, students will gather and create decorative papers, work on basic layout, then in the afternoon bring all these elements together to create unique artworks.

Embellish, add texture and color, bringing in personal touches along the way, tell a story, or just dive in and have fun creating spontaneous expressive collages.

Work at your own pace.

Basic acrylics paints, pencils, markers, brushes, stencils, papers, stamps, spray paint and glue will be
provided in class, but students can bring their own supplies if they choose.

Bringing an apron is suggested.


Students will each get five 9-by-12-inch gessoed heavy paper sheets to work on.

Students may bring their own canvas, paper, or panels to work on if they wish, no larger than 9-by-12-inch.

Bring a snack.

The class fee is $90 for nonmembers and $85 for VAC members, plus a $20 supply fee.

Advance registration is required and this workshop will be limited to 10 adults.
