Kona Arts Center has rescheduled a watercolor workshop taught by Annabel Spielman during March.

This workshop, which will now be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 19, 20, 22, and 23, will focus on paintings that block out areas with contact paper.

This year, the class will be at Kona Arts Center’s location in Keauhou Shopping Center, next to Jams World. Class size is limited. Reservations should be made to Norma Julia at 329-8605. Cost for the four-day workshop is $200, or $60 per day.

Spielman is an experienced painter with degrees from University of Texas in Austin. She has lived in Hawaii for over 40 years and during that time has been an active member of the art communities on the Big Island, Kauai and Maui, exhibiting in groups and one woman shows. Buyers from Hawaii, as well as the mainland and Europe, have added her paintings to their collection. She paints in acrylic, and oils as well as watercolor and likes introducing students to the joys of painting.

With a wealth of subject matter on the Hawaiian Islands, she has taught both beginners and more advanced students some of her special techniques.
