Color Yourself Happy with a Color Bridge

November 10, 2018 @ 12:00 - 14:00


Color enhances our moods and in this all-inclusive two-hour workshop Watercolorist Dawn Yoshimura will share her simple color theory for creating happy, bright, harmonious colors using watercolor. Using a basic rhythm to paint intuitively and fluidly using 3 basic strokes–you’ll soon be painting gorgeous color creating your own original Color Bridge painting to take home and enjoy! The design is based upon Dawn’s painting “Mikata: My Ally” from her calligraphic abstract series ‘Color Bridges’ but each painting is a result of your own unique creative expression. Enjoyable for all levels, ages and genders.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

I do this for children 7-11years but please book a private session. Today’s event is for 16years and older.

What must I bring to the event?

This is all-inclusive, so it means you just bring yourself! I provide the paint, paper, brushes, water, paper towels, etc. You will also receive a link to download an English copy of my coloring book valued at $12 as well as a printed version in Swedish valued at $10.

Do I need to know how to paint? I’m not very artistic.

No! You don’t have to know anything about watercolor or painting. I’ve had many students who had never tried before, such as engineers, nurses, lawyers, actors, or even other artists who had never tried watercolor before and they all had a great time and were pleased with their paintings.

Here’s what some past participants had to say:

”I didn’t know watercolor could be so fun. I thought it was hard and I never thought I could do one. I surprised myself!”

“I’m not an artistic guy, but I had a lot of fun and was surprised by how the time went by!”

“I love your watercolors and never thought I could do anything so beautiful, but this workshop really was great and when I came home and showed my husband my painting, he was really surprised and said I should frame it.”

“I came here expecting to have some fun, but I didn’t know I would learn so much. You explain things in a fun way and I am going to remember the ‘dump truck’ whenever I look at watercolor paintings from now on”

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Sign up here on eventbrite, but you can also call Nohea Gallery 762-7407 with any questions about the location (parking, access, etc). If you have questions about the workshop, you may contact me by sending me an email at dawn@dawnyoshimurastudio.com

What’s the refund policy?

There is no refund but you can send someone in your place or book a place in a future event within 12 months. You can also book a private session with me but must book an additional minimum of 3 other friends. I hold at least 2 open Color Bridge workshops a year but most people tend to book me with a group of their friends or coworkers at a date that is convenient to them.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes, as stated above, life happens, so if you find you can’t make it, contact me to let me know who you are sending in your place so when they arrive, I will know.
