Laulima: As Many Hands As Leaves

Join me as I paint on site with kalo farmers and conservationists in Wailua Nui in East Maui, and Olowalu in West Maui. Then I teach a step-by-step art lesson where students express the beauty and care that goes into these places. (Begin at 11:00)

Paintings created on site with the Nā Moku ʻAupuni ʻO Koʻolau Hui and Kipuka Olowalu. Ulana ʻĀina is made possible by the Hawaii State Foundation For Culture and the Arts.

These videos are created to connect keiki to our special places, to feel more connected to Maui’s special places and the work being done to protect them through art, as well as to connect to classroom curriculum in meaningful ways.

Supplies:

  • 6x9in watercolor paper
  • pencil
  • oil pastels (or crayons)
  • paint brush
  • watercolors
  • paper towel
  • cup of water
Student Artwork from in person classes in May 2022
The painting behind me as I teach is of Ke’anae. Look closely at it in this short video. What do you notice?
