Saturday July 13th, 2024 1-4 PM

Learn to paint a beautiful tropical scene, step by step!

It has been said about Wade’s tropical paintings, “Wade Koniakowsky’s focus is capturing Polynesian dreamscapes and the related emotional tie we have with far away lands. His vibe intersects with those same emotions–unspoiled, nirvana-esque landscapes, islander portraits, and ephemeral visions that make you want to sell it all and travel.” - Jim Moriarty, President of the Surfrider Foundation

Now Wade is offering his tropical approach in this upcoming workshop!
