To be able to create is to be able to express one's self. Clay is the enabling medium, which captures our thoughts and dreams.
I am deeply honored to have had the opportunity to work with the Hawaii Kai students who accepted my challenge to think, to create, and to excel.
Through art experiences we can improve the way we live and learn. The arts are a vital force for building on each child's love of learning.
Participating in the Kaiser Complex GT art classes as an artist/teacher/co-learner was a real pleasure. It made me realize how hungry we all are for personally rewarding art experiences.
Teaching watercolor to the students at Koko Head, Kamil'iki, and Haha'ione was a rewarding experience. the students seemed to learn a lot about watercolor techniques, but I learned a lot too... about creativity and freedom, about exuberance and what it takes to make a young person's eyes sparkle.
