Christine Waara Demonstration at Maui Hands

  MAUI HANDS AT 84 HANA HWY PRESENTS WATERCOLOR ARTIST CHRISTINE WAARA. COME MEET CHRISTINE AND WATCH HER WATERCOLOR PAINTING TECHNIQUES EVERY FRIDAY IN APRIL FROM 12PM - 4PM. About The Artist “Light is the subject matter of my newer paintings. Without light we would not have color. How much light, placement and direction of light, create the story of light. The change of value, temperature, color, and edges is what gives the subjects of my paintings dimension. In Hawaii, I do what the Hawaiians do. “Talking story” is what we say when we want to get together and share stories. My stories are my paintings I share with you. Christine has taught at the University of Rochester’s Creative Workshop at the Memorial Art Gallery and has conducted workshops and given talks at various art clubs across the country. She currently works part time at Maui Hands art gallery which keeps her connected to customers from all over the world as well as learning about other artists and how they create their art. When she’s not painting, she’s usually outside hiking, biking, swimming in the ocean, tending her garden, or at yoga.”   Contact Maui Hands galleries  -  Panna Speas Cappelli, owner 1169 Makawao Ave, Makawao, HI  96768 Phone: (808) 573-2021 (Business Office) (808) 579-8925 (Gallery) Paia Artist in Residence April
