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

A fascination of this mysterious and highly intelligent creature came about after watching the Netflix documentary , My Octopus Teacher. Soon after I began working with resin art and found this octopus mold. This was one of my favorite creations using alcohol inks and mica powders in resin.

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?
