I really enjoyed the pottery in the park class. The teacher knows a lot about pottery and was able to clearly pass her knowledge and guidance along to her students. I found the two projects we did to be unique and fun. The location is ideal and I found it very fun to be able to take a class outside.

ARTISTS
Madison Cowper
"The true purpose of arts education is not necessarily to create more professional dancers or artists. It's to create more complete human beings who are critical thinkers, who have curious minds, who can lead productive lives."

Madison is an illustrator and ceramicist who completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Auckland, New Zealand before moving to Honolulu. Madison has two years of experience as an art educator, teaching both ceramics and drawing. Being someone who makes art daily and has since teenage hood, she values art-making as a way of externalising inner thoughts and emotions. Her approach to art is the same as ones approach might be to journalling.

Madison aims to open students up to the endless exploration that art-making has to offer us. Art making is about experimentation, so by equipping students with tools that allow them to create, Madison's goal is to give other people creative agency over their own projects. Her sessions guide students through various essential techniques, teaching them how to develop their style, to then take the process in their own direction.

Madison Cowper is available for private bookings

Title or Location: He?e and Leho
The title for this piece is Hee and Leho. The technique I used is one of my own and this is the first piece I did it with. The focus of this piece was the Hee or Octopus coming out of it's hunting spot and pouncing on a Leho or Hawaiian Tiger Cowrie Seashell it's the Hee favorite food. I did the watercolor wash in an abstract way and the main idea was creation of a sponge or reef system and the Hee peering out of it. It's a technique developed some 15 years ago.

?Ballerina? By Linda C. PriceFebruary 11, 2024This was my 6th Acrylic Painting, after using Watercolors for several years. My subject matters in the past have been mostly landscapes, with ocean scenes and coconut trees. Painting people was not really on my radar, until my painting buddy said she asked our good friend if he could paint her daughter, but he was not interested, so I decided to challenge myself. My Ballerina painting is 9? X 12? using Arches 100 Cotton paper (A3). Since I?

Title or Location: La Enrolladora de Puros (The cigar roller)
This 42" x 36" oil on canvas was inspired by a trip to Playa del Carmen, a small beach community in the Yucat?n of Mexico. I stumbled upon a small kiosk where this woman was sitting rolling cigars. I was entranced watching her roll my order of gift cigars...her deft hands and serene demeanor were so intriguing that I asked her permission to take her picture. I took quite a few and the result is La Enrolladora de Puros. Here's an inside joke...there really was a piece of art behind her, but I sub

Title or Location: Wiwo'ole - Fearless
It is my goal to create art that will encourage, inspire, uplift. It seems to me there is more than enough depressing stuff in the world already. When I saw this little girl on a beach in Maui, I knew I had to paint her. Something in her demeanor resonated with me. While the other kids were running and squealing when the waves splashed their feet, she stood resolute, ready to face the mighty Pacific with nothing but her trusty penguin. We could all take a leaf from her book. Everyday we ar

Title or Location: The Girls
This is Isla, Ellie and Millie. Oil on canvas 27.5 inches x 39.5. They are my friends daughters. I often ask how 'the girls' are doing and there's always a funny story. Isla is full of mischief. Ellie is the sassy budding artist and Millie is a 'little devil' in the best way. I thought it was important to try and capture each of their personalities by working and finishing one at a time. They are beautiful girls. This was a pleasure to paint and I feel it has really tested my ability. I've defin

Title or Location: Memories of Bassano Del Grappa
A beautiful town in northern Italy - a town who protected partisans during WW2 and suffered the loss of all men and boys as retribution. Today it still bears the marks of war on the walls of the town, with the wooden bridge having been rebuilt a number of times due to war. This mosaic commission was created for a much happier reason, to commemorate a long held friendship between two families, here in Australia and there in Italy. Entirely created with hand cut pieces of glass.
