I learned that Schar is not only a fantastic and brilliant artist, but that she is also an art instructor! I quickly asked her if she would like to teach a class at my studio, and she said that she was just looking for a place to teach her "ART FOR CHANGE" Workshop. I was thrilled!

Schar's Bio from her Etsy site: As a child Schar wished to be an artist. Her painting began with mud and berry juice when living in the Redwood forests of Northern California. Her mother encouraged her passion with lessons at 12 yrs old were she studied with a wonderful artist who taught her to see and feel, moving from empty space into a visions held inside.
Schar studied with individuals and in the 90's became a "Ghost Painter" for an internationally popular artist. It is here that she developed her style and skills especially in oils and production. Schar's work has traveled the world and there are many collections in the USA as well as Europe. Schar's work is published 1999-2009 with WeMoon Calendars and cards receiving international appreciation.
Schar Freeman aka ScharCbear as a painter has thrived on her lush island of Kauai. The pure beauty of the aina (land) has inspired her recently to venture into landscape impressions of her island, and the people and cultures of Hawaii. Her palette is rich, pure and vibrant, her style versatile, at times whimsical and mystical. Schar paints with oil pastel, soft pastel, oil, acrylic and watercolor. Her use of color and images are representational. They are symbolic. They are personal and universal and capture an essence of spirit. Her series of American Native paintings is published internationally with Mother Tongue Ink.
Currently her work is represented through the Kauai Made program. Her work is found in galleries and collections in California, Oregon, Washington, Montana and Hawaii. Schar is also an accomplished photographer, published poet, Chef and a performing hula dancer.
A Cancer survivor, she volunteers with American Cancer Society, Relay For Life. "I relocated to this Garden Island, Kauai a decade ago after raising two incrediable sons and three husbands. A life-long dream of mine to live here and after visiting for 30 years, I made the move.""Having vision in only one eye, each and every day I am blessed that I can see and create a landscape, develope a dream or image of a dancer which moves me. I create from my heart and paint the impressions of the beauty which continues to surround me."
The paintings above are all beautiful works from Schar. From top to bottom: Spirit of Kalalau, Moon Dancer I, Pueo Dream Transition.
