Hilo Art & Glass Supply Collaborates with Art in the Ironworks
Aloha friends of the ironworks! This is the new collaborative newsletter of Art in the Ironworks, and Hilo Art & Glass Supply. For 2007, Art in the Ironworks is offering a full slate of art classes as well as its on-going exhibits. I, Eva Anderson, have stepped up to facilitate the workshop program through my store, Hilo Art & Glass Supply, open seven days a week for your convenience! I will continue to send out this newsletter to those still interested in hearing about the exhibits and workshops at Art in the Ironworks, my glass art classes at the East Hawaii Cultural Center, as well as exhibits and sales events at Hilo Art & Glass Supply. Thanks for all your support of Art in the Ironworks.

This is a great time to be in downtown Hilo because the Chinese New Year festivities will be going on complete with the Lion dance visits and fireworks and a performance at the Palace.

Workshop Changes:

Hilo Art & Glass Supply is now your sign-up and information station for workshops at Art in the Ironworks, one of the few places for quality private art instruction in Hilo. Also available is the skinny on my glass classes at the East Hawaii Cultural Center, glass bead making, fusing, and stained glass. We have set up a tentative schedule for the entire year, so if the current class schedule doesn’t work for you, a later class session may fit into your plans. All students enrolled in workshops at the ironworks will receive a 10% discount on their purchases at Hilo Art & Glass Supply for the duration of their class. We are open seven days a week and can handle payments and sign-up by phone at 935-9967

We offer free mini art classes on Sundays from noon to 4PM.

The remaining Sunday classes in February are:

Sunday February 18th: Jacob Medina will demonstrate Casein paint, a water-soluable, heavy bodied paint that works similarly to oils without the smell and mess!
Sunday February 25th: Drawing Faces with Eva Anderson, avid drawer of people.
Thanks for checking out our new workshop line-up, and please stop by Hilo Art & Glass Supply between Feb 12th and 18th for our Valentines/Chinese New Year Sidewalk sale!

This is the most comfortable, enlightening, common sense way to learn to paint with oils.

Beginning Watercolor: with Kerri Ligatich

Kerri is a wealth of important information about watercolor painting. She will demonstrate an impressive breadth of watercolor techniques and materials to jump-start your watercolor experience.

Beginning Drawing for Adults: with Jacob Medina

Thought you weren’t born with it? Always wished you had learned to draw, but thought it was too late? This is the class for you! Jacob Medina can teach anyone to draw with more skill. Believe it!

Advanced Drawing; the Mysteries of Chiarro-scurro: with Bob Dittbenner

This is an excellent class for students with some experience in drawing who want to take their drawing to the next level. Bob Dittbenner, renown for his ultra-realistic drawings, will help you to refine your drawings in order to elevate them from sketches to works of art.

Painting in the Taoist Sense: with David Hubbard

This is a fabulous class for the oil painter with some experience, or even a lot of experience.

Independent Watercolor Study: with Kerri Ligatich

This is an open studio session for Kerri’s existing students. Though not formally instructed, this session is an excellent way for students who have taken Kerri’s classes to work on their own paintings with Kerri close at hand to offer guidance.

Open Studio with David Hubbard -- Tuesday mornings

David invites you to participate in these informal painting sessions as a wonderful addition or follow-up to one of his classes.

Intro To Glass Fusing: w/ Eva Anderson -- at the East Hawaii Cultural Center 961-5711

Glass Fusing is one of the easiest methods for working with hot glass to make objects and art! Join Eva for this eye-opener of a class where students will learn to cut, shape, and arrange glass to melt or “fuse” it into one gorgeous piece. During this intro level class, students will make several small pieces that can be used in jewelry, nightlights, and small dishes.

Beginning Glass Beadmaking: w/Eva -- at the East Hawaii Cultural Center 961-5711

This is your chance to play with fire and have something beautiful to show for it! Learn to make glass beads in a torch in this neat class for everyone. This one-weekend class will give you a jump start in hot glass by introducing glass bead technique.
