Announcing the FIRST Ulana ‘Āina video, weaving art and conservation education together!
Then I teach a step-by-step art lesson where students can express how they will care for the coral reef, and see how their creative choices affect their painting’s ocean in real time. (Art lesson begins at 7:36.)
This art lesson is best completed in two 45 min sessions.
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.
If you use this video in your classroom, please click here to fill out a very simple survey. It helps as a part of my grant from the Hawaii State Foundation for Culture and the Arts.
