ʻO ka makamae a mālama ʻia
The Precious and Protected

Imagine you are a great winged creature soaring above our island of Hawaiʻi, of lands untouched by humans. Stretches of barren lava, dark oceans of aʻa and pahoehoe for as far as the eyes can see. In the distance, islands of ancient forests emerge as olivine gems, an oasis, a kipuka.

In this 5-day printmaking session with artist Hunter Buck, students will explore kipuka through the lens of community. Students will have fun exploring monotype printmaking techniques, freely exploring mark making, texture, design and color layering pushing the boundaries of play. Towards the end, students will start a collaborative project in response to their image development. Participants will be encouraged to work abstractly so they can really play with the possibilities of the medium and take advantage of some creative freedom! This experience will culminate in a student share out and discussion with other age groups in the Summer Art Experience program.
