Painting with Pastels – Join Marionette as she demonstrates her methods and materials to create a colorful, tropical pastel painting.  Focus will be on composition, drawing, layering, and color.  Plus, we will explore two different types of paper. $50. 


Watercolors at Lawai Beach Resort - Wednesdays from 1pm-4pm Choose to paint Hawaiian landscapes, tropical flowers, or a lovely plantation cottage. No drawing experience necessary. This class will take place at the beautiful Lawai Beach Resort. Students please meet at the activity desk at the resort and not at my studio. $40.  


Chinese Brush Painting & Modern Sumi-e  – Learn a modern approach to Sumi-e from Marionette as she demonstrates this beautiful, calligraphy-like art form.  You will learn about the traditional vs. modern materials to use as she guides you step-by-step through her creative and almost meditative process to paint bamboo, the wild orchid, and more.  I am currently only offering this class as a private lesson for $25 per hour.
