Hoban to teach painting workshop
The Volcano Art Center will present a workshop on “Process Painting — Spirit of Creativity” with Patricia Hoban from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, at the Niualani Campus of the Volcano Art Center in Volcano Village.
“Every one of us has creativity locked up inside ourselves, but we often have difficulty gaining access to that creativity,” said Hoban. “Embark on a journey that encourages you to experiment, explore, discover and play through painting.
“Process painting helps us find and bring forth our true selves. And in so doing we build pathways through which our creative energy can flow. In this workshop we silence the internal critic and throw away the rule book about how we ‘should’ paint. Paper, brushes and a rich array of paint colors will help you access your creative self,” said Hoban. “When people learn ‘the process,’ they can paint from within, letting their subconscious or right brain engage in spontaneous expression.”
Hoban has a degree in fine arts and education. She has a master’s degree in pastoral studies from Seattle University for her work as a prison chaplain. She studied process painting at the Center for Creative Exploration in San Francisco, and has been facilitating process painting workshops since 2005.
“No previous art education or painting experience is necessary in order to plunge into process painting,” she said.
Cost is $45, or $40 for VAC members, plus a $5 supply fee. Please bring lunch, drinks and wear painting clothes.
