Workshop

In 2017 the MPAPI workshop is taking a different approach. This 4-day workshop is a 'dual-teaching' workshop lead by Jason Sacran and John P Lasater, IV. Our workshop teachers are selected from the group of professional 'visiting artists'. Classes are usually comprised of local Maui artists, workshop teacher referrals, and those wishing to take a class from someone that focuses on specific painting techniques that are of interest to them.
