The Wai of Waikamoi

Join me as I paint on site in Maui’s alpine shrublands and in the native rainforest of Waikamoi, part of the single largest source of fresh surface water in Hawaii.  

Then paint with me as I teach a step-by-step art lesson where we express the beauty and value of our native rainforests with watercolors.  (Begin at 10:00)

Paintings created on site with the East Maui Watershed Partnership in Haleakala Ranch’s Pu’u Pahu Reserve, and in The Nature Conservancy’s Waikamoi Preserve.

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.
